This book is a interesting read and I have enjoyed it. Within this book I found a recipe for butter. The taste of Margarine's or fake butters have never appealed to me. The taste is just bad, its watery and does not melt all the way... YUCK!
Butter has always been my choice. My Nana always made sure when she came for visits that I had some butter on hand for her breakfast toast in the mornings She told me that she would never eat fake butter.
So I made some today... It's creamy and tastes really good! I had my doubts but not now. Here is one of the many sites I glanced at to get instructions.
All you need is Heavy Whipping Cream and a mixer, blender, processor, Kitchen aid or even a canning jar. You can search pinterest or the internet for specific instructions on any of the procedures. I used my kitchen-aid it was easy peasy. It did the work while I did laundry... Haha multitasking
Next you need to wash your butter
As butter melts fast in heat I used Ice water to assist in keeping the butter hard
(I didn't add the ice only the water)
During the washing faze I covered the mixer because the washing water was flying everywhere
Here is what you are left with... Real, Pure, Clean Butter!!!
I placed it in a clean jar in the fridge
It didn't mix well maybe 4 berries were to many
But the taste was a party in my mouth! It's not sweet like sugary spreads but I prefer the natural flavor
This picture did not show the butter well... but how do you take a pic of melted butter anyway lol Sooooo Very yummy! I find myself looking forward to tomorrow mornings breakfast! 7 grain bread with fresh strawberry butter.... Visions of spread will be dancing in my head.... lol
