How do you make your own butter? Here's the scoop on whipping up homemade butter.
I believe there are few things in life that are more comforting than butter, unless of course you mix butter with sugar, flour, eggs and chocolate for a batch of cookies. When I was a child I can remember my mother making an occasional batch of butter, but the kitchen is not a friendly place for me and I have never attempted to do make butter on my own. However, the folks at Positron.org
have given a very descriptive step-by-step instructional on how to make your own batch of butter.
The directions state that a butter churn is the best way to make butter, but as mentioned on our sister site, Slashfood by Sarah Gim
, few of us have one of those kicking around the kitchen. A jar or decent sized container will work for the churning process, but a food processor is thought to be too rough on the butter. Another recipe that does not require a churn
sounds like it might be better for entry level butter makers. This one sounds more like the way I remember my mother making butter. I suspect that the first method might overwhelm a beginning butter make, but if you have a hankering to make butter the second method just might be the way.
