I thought this process was going to be really hard and not work. I know sometimes I have no faith in myself. I have been thinking about it for a while and have been wanting to give it a go and with the prices of butter going up I keep thinking it maybe cheaper and better to make it myself.
Well today was the perfect day for trying it out. The morning started with a trip to an reuse place, but it was closed when we got there so we thought we would find a local dairy farm I had heard about. We were hoping they had a store where we could get some great products. But it was better than that. The owner was right at the door when we walked in and he gave us lots of products to go home with including cups to have a drink in the car. Chocolate Milk of course.
So once home I made my butter.
I used 4 cups of whipping cream,
Place cream in a food processor or kitchen aid and beat. It took about 15 minutes and at this time the butter is separate from the liquid (whey). I put it in a cheese cloth and got all the liquid off. At this point knead and mix in salt. (if you are adding it) and wrap in paper.
It is very easy and taste wonderful.
