My other thought was, can I save money by doing this ?? Good butter is $4 to 5 a pound here ( I don't like the cheap butter , it has more than cream and salt ) So can I do it ?? Read below and find out.
|Heavy Cream ( 35% ) and a mason jar with a lid is all you need|
|I used the handle from a spatula to finish the job .. 10 more minutes of stirring.|
|This was after 10 minutes of stirring .... just about there , it will come together quick now.. maybe 2 more minutes.|
|Butter!!! I made butter , 22 minutes of shaking and stirring produced this creamy goodness!! Now just one more step. Reserve the buttermilk ( I used mine for making a loaf of bread ) , and get a cup of ice water ready.|
|Put the butter back in the jar, with the ice water and shake for 2 more minutes... drain the water off, and this is what your left with.|
|Total time was 24 minutes... and I have butter that should last a month in the fridge.|
|The bowl weighed close to 300g, I ended up with a 150g ( 1/3 pound )|
Simply amazing is how I'm going to describe this butter, I have not had that many bread and butter sandwiches since I was a kid!! lol I will be making this again , the next time will be a batch size , with some flavourings added .. stick around Butter part 2 will be back !!
