Let’s make butter!

Sometimes there is nothing better then making things homemade.  I’ve made cakes, bread, biscuits, tortillas and many other things from scratch, but one of my favorite things to make is butter! It is super easy and taste better then anything you have EVER gotten from the store!

My usual method is to pour heavy whipping cream into a glass jar, usually a mason jar, and start shaking it up.  This is a long and tiring process, up to 20 minutes of shaking and lots of hand off’s to hubby.  But tonight I tried it in my Kitchenaid mixer, it didn’t take as long to make but it was messy and hard to remove the butter from the whisk attachment.  I was however able to make a larger amount of butter.  Not sure if I’ll do it again or go back to the shaking.  Either way I get some good homemade butter and buttermilk.

As always if you want to know more let me know.  I will be posting step by step on butter making in a jar in the near future.
