Making Homemade Butter
Making homemade butter is fun and easy to do.
1. Purchase quality heavy cream. Let the cream sit out for 12 hours before making. This allows the cream to ferment/sour.
2. Shake jar in a firm downward motion. (Like holding a hammer with two hands and hammering a nail)
3. As you are shaking, you will first see that the liquid clings to the sides the jar.
4. After 3 minutes of shaking you will start to feel something solid sloshing around. The liquid doesn't cling to the jar anymore.
5. Open the jar and you can see the butter. The liquid is buttermilk.
6. Pour out the buttermilk and save to use for baking or drinking.
7. Rinse off the excess buttermilk with water. Rinse and drain until water runs clear.
8. The butter is ready to use. Add salt if desired. Yum!
