Butter is so yummy! In this tutorial I will show you how to make your own at home with little fuss or mess.
Items you will need:
- Pick which machine. Kitchen Aid, old fashion hand turner and or jar with motor on top.
- Fresh farm cream or heavy whipping cream from store.
- Large spoon.
- Dish cloth to cover a kitchen aid if that is your choice machine.
- Saran wrap.
- Butter molder (optional)
- Brown sugar (optional)
- Glass jar to put butter milk in.
- Medium sized bowl.
First Step: Pick your machine and fill it only half full of cream!
Second Step: Turn your machine on or hand turn it until the cream comes clear to the top, breaks back down and you see yellow clumps of butter. The buttermilk will be splashing all sides of jar. If you are using the kitchen aid cover it with the dish towel so the buttermilk does not splash all over.
Third Step: Take your spoon and try to clump or ball the butter up in machine you are using and then scoop it into your bowl.
Fourth Step: Dump buttermilk into your jar a place in fridge, saving it for another time.
Fifth Step: Wash out the butter in your bowl by running cold water over it and mixing with your hands. Repeat this method until the water in the bowl runs clear then drain water out of bowl and bring to your counter.
Sixth Step: Salt using 1tsp to 1Tbls and or use brown sugar for special occasions. Work the salt or sugar you have put on your butter in with your hands. If you want unsalted, you would skip this step.
Seventh Step: Place butter in a mold you have purchased or simply mold it by using your hands. You are now ready to use it. Put in a dish, fridge or wrap it in Saran Wrap and freeze it for another day.
There you have it; how to make butter. If you have any questions feel free to ask in the comments section and or you can watch my video at the top.
If you want to make whip cream, you would stop the machine when the cream has gone all the way to the top, broken down about half way and is thick. Add a little sugar at this point, whip a little longer and you have whip cream.
