my recent focus has been on cheese but I'm definitely going to make butter in th morning.
Everything in excess! To enjoy the flavor of life, take big bites. Moderation is for monks.

i love the videoe. it reminds me of how we made it in the third grade. 20 kids in a circle. 10 shakes per kid. butter.

as a grownup, i almost made butter inadvertantly when i overwhipped some "whipped cream." i could see the flecks of yellow in the bowl.

question: can salt be added before shaking???

As I said, I use a mixer - but yes, I add a little salt (and a pinch of sugar) at the start.
