1 Ingredient .. Homemade Unsalted Butter

Since I bake a lot I go through a LOT of butter!  Which can be very expensive.  I then saw a few weeks back on a friends facebook post she made homemader butter.  Off to Google Search I went and came across an easy way to make butter!  Now you can add salt making this 2 ingredients but it's all up to you!  I found the recipe on All Recipes.

Sometimes I get lucky and find heavy whipping cream on sale like I did this last week for $1.99.  I was able to make 2 pounds of butter for $1.99! I found my ninja was the easiest to use, my food processor was great but you have to be careful because the liquid at the end can go everywhere.


INGREDIENTS:
2 cups heavy cream
1/4 teaspoon salt (optional)
DIRECTIONS:
1.Pour cream into a food processor or blender. Process for 10 minutes, or until the butter separates. Strain off the liquid. Season to taste with salt if you like. Press butter into a small bowl with the back of a spoon to further remove liquid. (I found a paper towel would also help take out the liquid)

If you don't use butter fast then you need to rinse the buttermilk out of the butter with cold running water, pushing the liquid out with a spatula. Salt should be added after the rinsing. Also, your cream and supplies should be very cold at all times for a good smooth consistency. Use at least 30% milk fat cream.


Thanks for Stopping by!

  2. ohhh neat!! I haven't tried making my own butter but you make it sound doable! I am going to have to try this for sure though I haven't a ninja, so hopefully the blender would work?
