I’ve been thinking about making my own butter for a while now. So why haven’t I? Simple, I thought it was ubber hard to do. Turns out making your own butter isn’t hard at all. So grab your gloves, bucket and churn. I’m kidding. All you need is a stand mixer, heavy cream and about 15 minutes.
Why make my own butter when I can just go to the store and buy it? It’s pretty simple actually. I love butter.. real butter not the yellow stuff that comes in those tubs. Don’t get me wrong margarine has it’s place in some things but butter… real butter that’s what I grew up eating and love so very much. You see my mom is German and eating open faced sandwiches with meat or jam on German bread or Brotchen with sweet creamy butter was what we had for breakfast.
The benefits to making your own butter? Other than the satisfaction you get from making it?? You know exactly what’s in it.. And hey plus you get buttermilk out of the deal too.. I made my butter without salt. That was/is a personal choice.
Put the buttermilk in a container like a Mason Jar and refrigerate for no more than 3 weeks. Put your newly made butter in a container of your choice and refrigerate for no more than 3 weeks if you can keep it that long.. I know mine wont last that long. Mine might last a week.. maybe.. probably not though. I plan on do some baking.
Is butter good for you? Butter like anything else you eat should be eaten in moderation. Don’t be afraid of butter. Of course if you’re reading this you already know how good butter is and you’re here to learn how to make it for yourself.. So let’s get to it..
