{DIY} Homemade Butter!

I love making homemade butter.
Lot's of times I will find a really good deal on heavy cream, when I do I like to use that to make homemade butter and butter milk.

it's a great thing to get the kids involved in, so if you have a little helpers have them help you!

today I thought I would show you how to make your own homemade butter and butter milk.

so let's get started!

What you will need:


  • 1 Quart Heavy Cream
  • 3/4 Teaspoon Salt
  • Mixer
  • large Bath Towel
Instructions:
1.) using your whisk attachment put your heavy cream into the bowl of your mixer, add the salt cover the mixer with the bath towel you will need this due to a lot of splashing trust me you don't want to skip this part.

2.) put your mixer on high and whip until it becomes whip cream turn off mixer and change your whisk to your paddle attachment cover again with towel, mix on high, the mixture will become liquid again with some small butter chunks.

(at this point the splashing will get bad so keep that towel on)

3.)keep mixing on high until a large clump of butter is made, there will also be a lot of liquid in the bowl that is butter milk. once the large clump is formed the butter is done.

4.) stranger buttermilk out of the butter and set aside for baking or place in a jar and store in the fridge. (I like to use a mason jar)

5.) take your clump of butter and using your hands pressed out the excess of buttermilk under cold running water until the water runs clear. 

6.) shape the butter into sticks or balls.

Notes:

  •  the butter will last up to four weeks in the refrigerator you can freeze it also.
  • this butter is the best on bread and for baking
  • use the buttermilk to make buttermilk pancakes.
