Making Butter :)

I’d love to share how we make butter. We make butter 2x a week 🙂
First, let your raw milk settle for about 24 hours, the cream will settle on top. i scoop my cream out with a turkey baster. It’s not the most professional way but it works!

I put 8 cups of cream into my Dimension mixer at a time and then I whip it. iphone download 080
I whip it into the buttermilk and the butter separate and I get clobs of yummy delicious butter.  iphone download 078
Then I rinse and rinse and rinse it… you want to rinse it clear.

In the above picture, you can see some drops of buttermilk on it and my strainer. Seriously – get all of the buttermilk out. You can then rewhip it at this point with salt if you want salted butter. I usually skip this step.
Lastly, I mold my butters into 1/4 cup chunks of butter and place them on a cookie sheet covered in wax paper. iphone download 081

I flash freeze these in my freezer and then put them into a container in my freezer where they will store really well.

Of course, this is another option 🙂
