I really didn’t want to share this silly video with you. I mean, what does churning butter have to do with bone health anyway? (Oh, I guess we could research up some connection between the amazing fat-soluble vitamins in hand churned butter and bone density – but it would definitely be a stretch!)
Anyway, my wife Viv (AlgaeCal’s COO) and Monica (AlgaeCal’s Content Manager) overruled me!
So here you go. Have a chuckle at my expense.
Watch the video below.
How to make Butter from leftover Cream!
|Prep Time||20 minutes|
- Take 1 cup of organic whipping cream and place into a large electric mixer. If using a hand mixer or mixing by hand, place into a large bowl.
- If using an electric mixer, set on low speed, then raise to medium speed. If using a hand mixer, turn on low and then raise to medium speed. Or if by hand, whisk away! (About 2 minutes)
- Once most of the whipping cream has turned solid, take a strainer and pour the remaining cream through it. Either into a bowl or cup. This excess cream is called buttermilk! You can save it and use it in baking or drink it! (It’s delicious).
- Once your butter has been separated from the buttermilk, rinse with cold water to get rid of the remaining buttermilk. Repeat until the water runs clear. * Removing the excess buttermilk prevents your butter from going sour.
- Place your homemade butter in a container or butter dish! (Use within 2-3 weeks) Enjoy!
- Optional addition: Add 1/2 tsp. of salt to your butter and mix well before placing into your butter dish.
Use organic ingredients whenever possible.
- 1 cup heavy whipping cream
- water cold
- 1/2 tbsp salt
- 1 stand mixer, hand mixer, or whisk
- 1 large bowl
- 1 strainer
Ok now you know what kind of silliness goes on in my house on an otherwise quiet evening.
