The other day, apropos of nothing much at all, George uttered these words:
"I want to make our own butter."
Being a true city girl and <web geek>, this stopped me dead in my tracks. I had visions of an upright wooden churn and George <surely not me> pumping away industriously (or is that stoically?) until someday it turned into butter of some sort.
This is just around the time he also mentioned that he wanted us to make our own bread. In all truth, given what we’ve found with the state of (some) foods in this country, we’ve been looking at making more and more of our food by hand. This means shopping for more small kitchen appliances and <if you’re a web geek like me> doing a bit of reading reviews and shopping online.
That said, we’re not able to get the heavy raw cream we’d need to make butter. Yes, we’re going to give it a try with the light raw cream, but I am not sure how it will come out — but we’ll report here when we try it.
At any rate, here’s a video showing how to make butter from cream in a stand mixer. Enjoy.
More on this later. <grin>
