Do-It-Yourself Butter

Paul, April 19, 2009

If you think butter only comes form the dairy case now-a-days, you’re in for a pleasant surprise.

Since we’re out of the bread baking loop until our crappy GE “Burn-O-Matic” oven gets replaced, I thought I’d add this little gem of an entry found on the always tasty, beautiful and very educational JoePastry blog: How to make butter

If you can get your hands on some heavy (35% or whipping) cream and spend about two minutes with a food processor then you have all the required ingredients and tools needed to make your own fresh butter. Although he says that just makes it easier, a big mayo jar, a marble and half an hour of shaking will work too, so you can definitely still do it low-tech. Just like great grandma used to do.
