now, butter is something that i would think takes a lot of effort to make. i was amazed to learn that it is actually super easy, and fast... and SO delicious.
we bought some good quality organic cream, left it on the counter to warm up a bit (2 hours), put it in the food processor and watched the magic happen. first is turns into whipped cream for a minute or two and then, viola... butter.
here is a good step by step tutorial, if your interested... the only adjustment i made was doing it in the food processor (way less mess) and letting my cream warm, it came together much quicker.
i love being a farmer woman in my mind.
here is a shot of our butter blob after rinsing.
