Homemade Butter...

I love to try anything new when it comes to baking or cooking!

I love being able to use wholesome ingredients
 to create something fresh and healthy for my family.

I don't know if you have noticed or not, 
but every time you go to the store and you look 
at the back ingredients list, 
it's really not that healthy for you.

I'm not an extreme health nut by any means, 
but I have been becoming aware of whats in my food.

Do they really need to put all those dyes in our food?
If you can't pronounce the ingredients, it's probably bad for you.

So, I got to thinking.....
Why not try to make life a little simpler by
 just trying something for the first time.

Make it from scratch if you can.

Know what you are putting in your mouth!

Think outside the box!!

And, this is how I came across trying to make Homemade Butter,
And I have made it three times now!

It is so good, it takes a little time to make, but it is SO worth it in the end.
And, if you have a kitchen aid, it really does all the work for you.

I didn't take step by step pictures when I made mine,
so I am posting the link that I found to be quite 
helpful when trying this for the first time.

All you need is:

One Quart of Heaving Whipping Cream
salt for taste
And or course a Kitchen Aid

Click on the link below:

I got 4-6, medium size bars from making 1 quart of whipping cream into butter.
  I wrapped them up individually in saran wrap 
and placed them in the freezer until ready to use.

And, you get one pint of freshly squeezed Buttermilk!
What more can you ask for?!

I hope you give this a try, 
you won't regret the decision one bit!


Happy Baking,

I'm so glad you posted this link Amy. I loved the home made butter you brought to us on Valentines Day. It was my coveted butter until it was gone. I made butter when I was in Brownies (I think I was 6 at the time); I never forgot it; in fact it is the only thing I remember about being in Brownies. I have always loved to try things homemade; and have loved to experiment over the years. Luke is a real make it from scratch person, so when he was back home, it was as if he pushed the button for making from scratch for me again, and I have been finding it almost natural. It takes a while to put that kind of thinking back on, because our society has been away from it for so long. Have a great week. Give our love to Barry and the boys.
Love and Blessings,

What a fun thing to make. Like you, I am becoming more aware of what I eat. It is startling many times to read what is in our food! I love good butter and this looks delish. Thanks!

Amy, Oh my goodness I am so going to have to make this. Though I might have to make a double batch with all the kiddos that I have. Lol I will make the bread if you bring the butter. Wish you were here!

I was blessed to grow up on a farm where we milked cows and ate home grown milk, cream and butter. Sadly I took it for granted :( but everyone who came to visit all wanted to take some home as it tasted so good:))

Yes, I have become a major label reader. Making the butter is a very good idea!

mountain mama said...

sounds good, we've made it in small batches for experiments but never it a big enough batch to eat a lot of. so much healthier...and cost effective!
God bless~
