Butter Pictorial


Noticed the half filled jar :)

Put mixer on high

watch the cream grow

it is beginning to make some ribbons

the rich smooth whipped cream is forming

the whipped cream is starting to change

the yellow you are about to observe is not added :)

the butter milk is poured off and the butter washed. Once it washes clear then you can add any flavors you'd like.

Here is the buttermilk with butter flakes - it is light and nothing like what is found in the store.

this is to give an idea of how much buttermilk I get.

Looks awesome dude! Cant wait to try some. Although I'll wait until the kids complete their flavour experimentation :)

Very informative. I never would have imagined it looked quite like that as the butter formed. I'm glad you can use the mixer, though, because it seems easier than churning.

Plus, we already have a mixer. A great one.

A churn is so much more expensive than a $6 mixer from Wal-Mart. I was really happy it worked out. :)

I want to try this, but one question lingers from your tutorial - How does one wash butter?
