I have often made butter when I have seem double cream reduced in price, I have always done with the shaking method pouring the cream into a container and shaking it until the butter forms, it can be long tiring process, the other week I ordered this
A small manual butter churn, I bought it through Amazon £59 very easy to use
Pour in the cream and turn the handle for about 10 mins, first it becomes whipped cream you continue turning then the solids separate
pour off the buttermilk wash the solids in a sieve under cold running water to get rid of any remaining buttermilk and what you are left with is butter.
I used the buttermilk to make up some scones
Bread Butter and Scones.
I do add a bit f salt to butter I make it helps it to keep longer, I am suitable impressed with the churn, its less tiring to use and easy to clean.
I am still thinking about some goats but so far it is just a thought, it would be nice to have our own goat for milk and butter. In the meantime I will have to continue buying in cream.
