Homemade Butter...

Butter...Homemade Butter. Are there any two words more delicious in the kitchen? I think not. I love to cook. I love to bake. One of the best ingredients a baker and, sometimes even a cook, could use is butter. Yummy, creamy, melt in your mouth or on a hot roll good. So when I came across a recipe for homemade butter last weekend I just knew I had to try it! The Mr. asked, "Did you buy a churn?" No. I need but two things to make this work. Heavy cream and a food processor. No churn or a full day required. Dead women who use to churn all day, envied me. The butter turned out marvelous and delicious. I look forward to always having some on hand. Because, it's homemade, so it's gotta be good for you...right? Right! Homemade, if you can, is always the way to go in my opinion. I suggest, not that I'm anyone special but, you should try to make at least one homemade meal a week. It will forever change your life. Well, at least your wallet! Make something from scratch it's fun and you know exactly what your family is eating.

Moving On.

I have uploaded some pictures from my homemade butter experience. It was epic. If it were a movie it would win every golden globe available. The Oscars? Their mind would be blown, it would win every award available!(Have I mentioned, I don't know where my girls get being dramatic from?) If it were a movie it would look a little something like this:

This was so easy to make and took less than 10 minutes! I didn't salt the butter, you can if you want. I did use a cheese cloth to squeeze the extra buttermilk out of the butter. The Mr. used the buttermilk to make homemade biscuits the next morning. Yum! Trust me, you should try it! Here is the link for the website I found the homemade butter. Her name is Jennie and has some great recipes.(FYI: Be prepared for a tissue and maybe even say a prayer for her, she just lost her husband expectantly last week. I think I'll go give my hubby and kids a long hug.) I hope you take the time to make some butter. You will not regret it! :)
