Do-It-Yourself Butter

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.

I'm just a regular type mid-50's fella, recently moved to Vancouver Island, BC, Canada, who enjoys bread making and sharing the adventure. I've only been at this on a steady basis since 2007 when I decided to look for better bread than what was available in the local grocery. You are cordially invited to add comments, questions and musings of your own to any of these posts; this isn't intended to be a one way communication. I'm not an expert and likely won't be one for years to come. But I do want to share my experiences and what I have picked up in order to help spread this "bread baking" virus. Because as habits go, it's a darn tasty one!
