From scratch

i made butter! I can hear you all saying would you just buy the damn butter woman. But its so darn simple to make i had to try it. 

4 cups cream into a mixer (i have a kitchen aid)(2ltr of cream cost me $2.99) beat the living day lights out of it. It will turn into whipped cream then Start to curdle and go yellow. Then you will notice it start to seporate into chunks and milk. Then strain out the butter milk. Pressing the butter to get as much moisture out as you can. Then knead in 1tsp of salt on a wooden board (wood draws out more moisture). Done!

   
    
 
Dont throw out the buttermilk. Put 2 cups cream and 2 tbls buttermilk into a jug and stir. Leave out for 24hrs. Know what we are making? Sour cream! Should be thick like custard after 24hrs then put in the fridge for another day and vola! And i still have enough cream left for scones or another batch of sour cream. Not bad for $2.99 and 10mins work.
