Making Butter

I’m using my latest butter making as a test run at posting videos to my blog. I use my KitchenAid with the whisk to get the process started.

After a few minutes of whipping…

Swap the whisk for the paddle…

Continue whipping with the paddle…

Getting thicker…

Getting chunky…

And the magical moment with the cream breaks into butter and butter milk… you can hear the buttermilk sloshing in the bowl…

And we have butter and buttermilk!

I use my bamboo spatulas as butter paddles to wash the butter…

Formed and washed…
