Making Homemade Butter

Our buddy Jay was telling us about how he learned to make his own butter from LifeHacker and I was so intrigued I thought I should try it. I had clearly lost my mind. My mother even said that was for the birds, just buy it! But did I listen? Do I ever listen? ha oh no.....


I don't know if my process was made longer by my ingredients but I used all organic with Cream from a local dairy.
This is the point where I was remembering one of my dad's friends wanting to buy us that Kitchen Aid Mixer for a wedding gift and I told him " oh no, that is too expensive" , well I was kicking myself for that last night. But you see it getting creamier
Then kind of Chunky
Then after I separated it and cleaned it. I was expecting ALOT more butter after all that, so if I ever do this again I will quadruple that recipe so as to really make it worth while! ha

Sorry to say I have not tasted it yet so I cant attest to the wonderfulness of homemade butter just yet! If you want to try your hand at it, you can read step by step by clicking HERE

I did that in Girl Scouts 20 years ago... But I thought we shook a jar or something. Who knows, but I obviously learned alot from the experience. Just buy it.

Wow you are very adventurous to make your own butter! Yeah you would have thought it would have made more! You passed on a Kitchen Aid mixer??!! That is a right of passage for a woman to have a Kitchen Aid mixer! But of course I don't have one yet!

Hi dear! I hear the Hatcher cream is harder to use for butter AND whipped cream, but I know it IS the yummiest!! Super impressed. I passed on a Kitchen Aid mixer too, thought I wouldn't have enough room. One of the worst mistakes ever!!
