You only need 10 minutes to make your own home-made butter!

To make butter at home, you need the help of your KitchenAid. You can afterwards, add salt to it, fresh herbs, garlic, whatever you want!! And with the remaining Buttermilk, delicious breads and muffins, yogurts or fresh cheese. So it’s definitely worth it. You only need a good quality cream with at least 35% fat content (if it has less it won’t work), salt and any other herb that you’d like to add!
Beat the cream at high speed until the liquid part separates from the solid fat.The liquid will spill out of the beater, so be sure to cover well to avoid getting a mess of your kitchen!
What happens here with the mixing is that the fat globules are damaged and their fat leaks out and comes together into masses that are large enough to gather.
Collect, with help of a sieve, the Buttermilk. Buttermilk is a fermented milk with a population of Lactobacilus bacteria, and it is used for cheese, yogurt making, breads and muffins, providing great flavour and tenderness to the cakes.
Wash well the butter removing all the butter milk. The more buttermilk it has, the less it will last.
With help of a wooden spoon start kneading the butter, and removing any excess of buttermilk. Add the salt or herbs here, and collect all the butter into a mold or the recipient you’d like to use. I made a salty one, and another one with lemon thyme (smelled delicious). For the thyme butter, I wrapped it in film and shaped it with my hands and afterwards placed it in the freezer for about one hour. After that I cut it into slices and it looked really nice and elegant.
And that’s it!!! Home-made butter. And with a good bread, you are the closest to heaven.
