Butter Making


My first attempt at making butter, delicious, well worth doing, I need to find a cheaper source of cream as this isn’t really economic but added to the list of things I can do.
Butter Making recipes  My name is Roz but lots call me Rosie.  Welcome to Rosies Home Kitchen.  I moved from the UK to France in 2005, gave up my business and with my husband, Paul, and two sons converted a small cottage in rural Brittany to our home   Half Acre Farm.  It was here after years of ready meals and take aways in the UK I realised that I could cook. Paul also learned he could grow vegetables and plant fruit trees; we also keep our own poultry for meat and eggs. Shortly after finishing the work on our house we was featured in a magazine called Breton and since then Ive been featured in a few magazines for my food.  My two sons now have their own families but live near by and Im now the proud grandmother of two little boys. Both of my daughter in laws are both great cooks.  My cooking is home cooking, but often with a French twist, my videos are not there to impress but inspire, So many people say that they cant cook, but we all can, you just got to give it a go.

Double, heavy or whipping cream, I used two cups, (Made 190gm of butter)

Salt

Ice water for washing the butter

Now I missed a couple of photographs here, next time I make butter I will add the photos.

You can make butter without a food processor but they make the job so much easier.
I recommend you use a splash guard this will save a lot of mess, start with a whisk, if you can change to a mixer blade after the cream has whisked life will be a little easier later but the whole process can still be done in ten minutes.

Put the cream in the mixer and start whisking, once the cream is whipped your only one stage away from butter, the cream will break and separate you will be left with butter and butter milk. Drain the milk into a jar, you can use this later, I use it and whey from cheesemaking to make bread.

If you have a beater blade put that on now, it’s easier to scrape butter off that than get it out of the whisk.

Now start washing the butter, to do this pour about a cupful of ice water (but not the ice) into the butter and beat for 10 seconds. Drain again and repeat, you will need to do this 2 or 3 times, when the water remains clear, no more butter milk comes out then drain that water remove the bowl from the mixer and wash the butter once more using a wooden spoon to push any butter milk is left, then drain. You now have butter.

Scrape the butter out onto a piece of kitchen paper.add salt and mix the salt in, I’m not saying how much, you need to taste and adjust to suit yourself.

      Glad your happy with it, just need to find cream at the right price. I do like being able to make unsalted for the kitchen.

      1. Karin

        How much does the cream cost you use?
        And the name of the cream?

        1. Rosie

          Sorry Karin, just seen your comment, with the cream I used not worth doing, but I bought some 49 cent 30% cream at lidls, used that and it worked, about level in price with shop bought but it probably spend more making cheese and bread than I can buy it at the shops, certainly shop bought jams are cheaper than home made but I know what I prefer. Any cream with a fat content of 30% or more will make butter, if it is 30% I suggest you use a electric whisk not a hand one.
