Easy: How To Make Butter Tutorial

I was very lucky after Christmas and the local supermarket had marked down lots of units of cream.  So I bought about 5 large (600ml) containers.  I didn’t have a clue what I was going to do with all that cream, but it was Christmas/New Year and we were having guests and some nice dinners.  But still 5 containers of cream??  And I really hate cream.  Seriously, even when I have to decorate the odd Pavlova (the Pav itself is not odd) I usually substitute the cream with vanilla yogurt, which is yum, you should try it…and if you have never had Pavlova, you should try it…yum!

Anyway back to the cream issue.  It is the 3 of January and I had one bottle of cream with the used by date of the 5th, and it’s 9 o’clock at night… so I said to myself “self! I think it is about time I made butter” so here is what I did…

  1. Pour cream into the mixer.
  2. Turn mixer on.
  3. After a few minutes, when it is a bit watery you can drain the buttermilk and save for pancakes.
  4. Add about a quarter teaspoon of salt (optional) mix for 20 seconds more.
  5. Drain more buttermilk.
  6. Put on fresh toast and add some jam.

I didn’t take any photos of the making of the butter but just imagine…

now imagine…

a picture of lumpy yellow cream here, with watery stuff all around…

and here is some butter, that I made for $1.13 and it is really really nice.  Um I also added some toast crumbs for effect.

It is really simple, you don’t need anything fancy and you only really need one ingredient.

Have a great day or night.  Ruby Ruby Ruby xxx
