The veggie shop had 2 lt bottles of cream cheap as chips.
So I bought some.
What to make.....
.........BUTTER of course.




put your cream into a large mixing bowl and beat it, once it is nice and thick like you would use for cakes etc,
You can flavour it here if you like


keep beating it, after a few minutes it will look like this, scrap the sides down and beat some more.


once it starts to clunk around and spit out liquid you will have this

This is your butter finished.

Now all you have to is drain it.

This is the butter milk after it has drained off the milk.

Now you can use a stainer and then squeeze the butter by hand to remove the last little bits.
Or you can pop it into cheese cloth/muslin and keep twisting the top to remove all the excess butter milk.
I never bother with this step as I keep my butter frozen and only thaw it when I need it to cook with.

I store mine in ziplock bags with the date on the front so that I use the earliest ones first.

freezes well, tastes great.

I make butter all the time just like that! It is SO good, if you've never tried it you just have to. I add a little salt to mine when its at the last stage.

Thanks for such a timely post!  A few weeks ago I found out I possibly have celiac disease, and my doctor was telling me that there all sorts of easy changes you can make in your diet to help eliminate the symptoms.  One of the things she mentioned was home made butter but I had no clue how to go about making that and haven't had time to research it yet.  Thanks for all the valuable information, and especially the pictures.

So, to flavor it, you can add salt like stafishtaylz said...what else can you do to it?  I know my doctor said something about almond butter...is that the same thing as this, just with almonds or almond oil added?  Hmmm...

Anyway, now I know where to turn when I'm ready to make this, it's going in my bookmarks!  Smiley

i love making butter! so fun, so easy, so so sooooo tasty!

almond butter is like peanut butter but made with almonds instead of peanuts. you could make it in a food processor, just process until creamy.

herbs such as chives, rosemary and sage are also good flavorings for butter!

This looks like something that kids could help make. I love the simple nature of this and the "freezability"! Thanks for posting!

I have begun to make all of the bread my husband and I use, rather than buying it.  What better way to compliment homemade bread than homemade butter!?!  YUM!  Thanks so much for the directions.  I never knew butter was so easy to make.  You may have just inspired me to invest in a food processor.   Cheesy
