White butter

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
I just had an idea. I'm going to start making my own butter for those must-have-white-icing needs... you know weddings, things like that. icon_biggrin.gif

I found a recipe that uses your food processor. Worth one try anyway!

I made butter (with a churn) once many many years ago and I remember it was good.

Here's the link for anyone else interested:

Look toward the bottom

Oh yeah- you can add salt if desired according other recipes I found.

You know I was watching Zoom (it's a kids show...I was bored icon_redface.gif ) and they made their own butter by shaking the cream in a mason jar. I wonder though if it would cost more to take the cream to butter. The butter I use makes a very white BC...it's that store brand Kroger I was telling you about in another post. It's a very pale shade of yellow more like a cream color. Once it's mixed with the shortening and powdered sugar for a while, it's as white as it would be without butter.

It was neat though...how easy it is to make your own butter. Good thing to know and definately worth a try.

Oh my goodness!! I remember sitting on my mamaw's front porch just a churning butter!! That brought back sweet memories! Gosh, that butter was good! Mamaw would make it into loaves if I remember correctly & then she would put it in the freezer. Me & my sister would sit there & eat just plain butter~ Ohhh I also remember making homemade icecream!!!!! Turning that handle & so excited to get that icecream made!! Yummy!!

Lisa,

I used to teach preschool (gave it up about 2 years ago) & my class always made butter & icecream. For the icecream we just used a ziploc bag with ice in it & some whipping cream. The kids got to make it & they enjoyed it so much. We also made butter but for the life of me I can't remember how we made it.

I loved that show, Zoom, when I was younger (it was originally out many many moons ago)...

I just thought it would be fun. I'm not worried about cost in this matter. If it's good- they will pay for it. It shouldn't up the cost that much.

I'll report back. It will be this weekend before I can try it.

Yummy home made cranked icecream I was just talking to Mom the other day about being a kid and remembering doing this ... too funny...


Now butter on the other hand I know they did it once when I was a kid but that is about all I remember and then we did the buttermilk too... LOL ..

I don't know why I find the responses so funny, but bear with me, I have a migraine, for the 7th day in a row, so I am a bit drugged and punch drunk!
I remember making ice cream at my aunt's cottage and what a treat that was, turning the crank and all. I remember churning butter too.
The mason jar thing works kiddos, but holy cow, at my age, there would be a whole lotta shakin going on, and I don't mean just the butter! Ooh, not a pretty picture.
I agree Dawn that would make a difference. But I think you should also get a European cow to milk to really make that old butter from scratch. Now I am sorry, but I can just picture you doing it kiddo and then I have this picture in mind of the tutorial and the cow having a name like Besse or Daisy and Dawn doing a buttercream transfer of the cow named Besse or Daisy and milking her and making the butter for the transfer and the whole darn tutorial taking up all existing web space. And then we could all move to a 1970's commune and make everything from scratch and bake our cakes over open fires and...
Or we could stock up on whipped butter, hhmn, which sound like less work!
All kidding aside, honestly I have thought of trying it out too with an electric churner.
Funny how churning and upchucking have the same meaning in another form.
Ok, I am officially punch drunk.
Hugs Squirrelly Cakers - shoot, how did that "r" get in there
