I wanted to follow in Angry Chicken's footsteps and make butter.
Whipped cream...thick and yummy looking.
See how the butter started to separate from the buttermilk.
The followed Angry Chicken's advice to bring cream to room temperature-ish to speed up the process which was needful with my helpers.
A great helpful how-to link at Portland Food & Drink.
Rinsing the butter.
Many, many times.
Kneading, rinsing and squeezing the buttery goodness.
The butter in all it's glory.
Buttermilk in all its sweetness.
I foresee buttermilk biscuits in our future.
Sprinkle a bit of sea salt on your toast.
Yes, I know, we can buy butter.
We did celebrate St. Patty's Day.
Not with green food but with good old corned beef and roasted potatoes (the easiest dinner EVER) and we read "Fiona's Luck".
Of, course we wore green...no pinching!
