How to make Butter from leftover Cream!
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.
