Last night as I was reading my favorite blogs, I noticed Nikki had made butter! I was completely shocked at how easy making butter really is. While talking to Nikki today, I mentioned that I had a container of whole cream in my fridge that was past dated and she should’ve posted this sooner so I could make it. Nikki told me to go home and smell the cream, that as long as it didn’t smell sour it was still good. Yay!! So, I rushed home at lunch and found the cream. My lucky day! The cream had no smell so it was still good.
First I poured my 1 pint of heavy cream into my mixer.
Then after a couple of minutes of whipping it on medium high for a couple minutes it turned into whipped cream.
Then it got to be really really thick whipped creamish.
Butter and Buttermilk!
Then, you have to put the butter into a cloth to strain the remaining buttermilk.
And finally you have real butter!
Stupid me couldn’t find any crackers at the house to taste this yummy butter, but I hear it is delicious. Check back tomorrow to see what I’m going to make to tonight to eat with it. 🙂
