I use butter in almost all my recipes in some way, shape or form! So I thought it would only be right to show you how easy it is to make it in your own home!
Spend enough time in the kitchen and you’re bound to have over whipped cream at some point. But maybe what you didn’t know was that you were already on your way to making your very own batch of fresh butter.
You can make butter with any quantity of cream but the amount I’ve used in our recipe below will make about 300g of top quality butter. Enough to keep you going for a week or so but if your planning on doing some serious baking you might need to double or triple the recipe.
Why would you want to undertake such a task as churning your own butter when you can just pop to the store? Well there are couple of reasons I can think of!
First, it is really quite fun to make your own butter and it is super easy, making it a great task to do with your kids. It is also immensely satisfying to magically transform cream into butter in your own kitchen. You not only do you become a master of a little forgotten skill, but you also end up with a product that is often far superior to that you can buy in the shops. Especially if you choose quality cream.
Lastly making homemade butter is a great way to use up any cream you have leftover from anything you have been cooking. No more letting that leftover 100ml of cream go off or to waste now you can churn it and keep it as delicious fresh butter!
So you butter be ready (sorry) because I am going to show you exactly what you need to do to become your own churning champ!
