Making homemade butter has never been easier with great appliances like a KitchenAid Mixer. A gift from my dad 8 years ago my KitchenAid gets daily use at our house. Below is a gallery of images of the process of making butter from local raw milk cream. It’s super easy and I know exactly what’s in it. Cream! You can also add herbs and salt as desired.
Skim the cream off the top of your raw milk. Put the cream in your mixer. Mix on medium/high until whipped cream starts to solidify and then turn speed slower so the buttermilk doesn’t splash out. Once the butter clumps onto your whisk remove butter from bowl and whisk. Fill a bowl with ice cold water. Massage butter into clear water to remove any excess buttermilk(it will keep longer with the uncultured buttermilk removed). Refresh water and massage butter until water remains clear. Then place butter on wax paper and you can add salt(will make it last longer) and herbs to taste. Then shape butter and wrap in wax paper and store in refrigerator until ready to use. Or store in butter dish for daily use.
