I am about to reveal to you an ANCIENT butter making secret, to make butter it requires, shaking, shaking, shaking, MORE shaking, lots of shaking, but the end result is FANTASTIC. Homemade butter can be fun to make (if you are a butter enthusiast).And clean-up is very easy, you only need a few things
Whipping cream (Can be normal or heavy whipping cream)
1 measuring device (not necassarily needed)
1 Fresh strong arms,able to withstand alot of shaking
the whole process takes about... 10-20 minutes, the majority of the time is shaking. The rest is prep time and finish
Step 1: Adding Ingredients
First you will want to measure out how much butter you really want to make. At the beginning of the recipe I measured about 1 cup of heavy cream, in the end this recipe yielded about half a cup of butter, (the other half cup didnt go missing, just "turned into" Buttermilk)
After youve measured out the desired amount of cream, simply pour it into the jar, there are no other required ingredients (and i usually put flavoring for the butter in at the end)
Step 2: Capping and Shaking
VERY VERY CAREFULLY put the cap on the jar. phew glad thats over.
then begin to shake,it will take awhile to shake this into butter but it is well worth it in the end.
Heres a picture of me shaking it in action :)
Step 3: Nearly done
Every about 3 minutes check the jar by taking off the lid and looking inside, once you see about the consistency in the jar you are nearly done, in the picture the cream is just before whipped cream, (yes thats how you make it)
