Everyone loves butter, everyone understands the importance of butter and everyone knows how simply wonderful it is when spread it on a piece of freshly baked bread, or when it is mixed with some freshly minced garlic and smothered over a steak.
Now how on earth could you possibly make butter any better? Well…. You could always make it yourself…? And what if we were to tell you that you could make your very own fresh butter in just over 10 minutes?
We are going to show you exactly how you can make your own butter.
Add your room temperature cream to the Kilner Butter Churn and tightly attach the lid (make sure it is secure, you don’t want to paint your walls cream)
Now for the fun part, get your guns ready for some churning! Turn the handle on the top to start turning the cogs. You want to churn for approximately ten minutes and watch the cream get thicker and thicker
Just keep churning, just keep churning. You will know when your butter is ready as you will see it start to turn from a thick cream to clumps of butter (the solid) and buttermilk (the liquid).
You now want to separate the liquid from the soild, you could do this by holding a Spatula against the side of the jar and allowing the liquid to flow into a spare jar or you could place a sheet of Muslin over a jar and allow it to drain through, really it is up to you.
The next step is to give your butter a good ole squeeze in a bowl of ice cold water whilst using the Butter Paddles to get rid of any excess buttermilk that may have got caught in the nooks and crannies, this is also a good opportunity to give your butter a light knead so that it is super smooth.
Lastly, you may want to mould the butter using the Butter Paddles.
Here is where you could leave it as it and place it a Butter Dish or you could flavour it will salt, pepper, chilli, honey you choose! However, we would highly recommend this recipe from Kilner that uses Chilli and Lime for flavouring.
