It’s the simple things in life that give pleasure, butter being one of them, well for me anyway. Â I used my thermomix to make it, following the recipe from the Everyday Thermomix Recipe Book, but regular hand held beaters or a food processor will create the same result. Â Only use pure cream to make butter. Â I used some beautiful organic cream and the flavour was amazing. Â You can use the buttermilk in cooking too. Â I used it in my pancake mixture.
approximately 600ml pure cream
salt to taste
Beat cream until the the solids and buttermilk separate, approximately 5 mins. Â The solids, butter, will take on a distinctive yellow colour and the buttermilk is very watery. Â Pour off the buttermilk and set aside for use in another recipe of your choice. Â Add about 500ml ice cold water over the butter solids and mix for about 5 seconds, rinse. Â Pour off this liquid and discard. Â Add salt to taste and mix until combined. Â Store in fridge.
Enjoy! Â Jacinta x
