Homemade Butter...

I made homemade butter, y'all!  
The only thing that would have been better, would have been if we had an ole' Bessie the cow in the pasture that I could have gotten genuine whipping cream from, but store bought will do!

I found this recipe online, and shared it on my Facebook page a couple of weeks ago...


It's so easy -  buy Heavy Whipping Cream, add it to a mixer/blender/mason jar, and shake away.  It took my standup mixer about ten minutes, and I started seeing butter... drain the liquid from the butter, and place it in a mason jar.... oh, honey!

It's so fun to reach into the fridge and grab a jar full of homemade butter.

I felt kinda like "Maw" when I was making my homemade butter... 
Butter makes everything better, y'all!
I'm not sure that I saved a lot of money by making my own, but it sure was fun, and I love that I know exactly what went into the butter.... I know a lady who sells fresh cow's milk... I might just have to start making the real deal.  How fun would that be?!
Oh, my!
