Have you ever heard that saying before? That famous chef Paula Dean says “everything taste better with butter”! Well, I have to say I agree. Not so good for the heart but gives a wonderful flavor to many foods.
Today I decided to make my own butter. I am sure you are thinking how crazy that is when you can buy it in nicely wrapped squares at the local grocery. Well, I just wanted to! It was so much fun and SO easy! You are suppose to use a mixer but I killed mine last week and I need to go buy a new one. I tried the blender but it didn’t work so well. Then I used my little “wanna be” food processor.
The only ingredient was 2 cups of heavy whipping cream.
I put the cream in the food processor and mixed it for about 7 to 10 minutes. You can tell when it is done because it forms into big clumps of butter.
It was a little messy for me because my little food processor is so small that the 2 cups filled it up and it ran over a little. So much fun! I feel so accomplished! I added 2 tablespoons of white sugar and 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon to one ball of butter. My sweet husband is going to love it on his toast tomorrow. I put knorrs pesto in another that I am going to try on my grill cheese. More to come tomorrow…….
