Butter from Extra Thick Double Cream!

This butter recipe was made from extra thick double cream! It’s rather fun (though personally; it’s also tiring to your arm) to make it! This is great if you’ve run out of it and need to make some quickly! Either for a recipe or general cooking needs- as long as you’ve got double cream! You’re ready!

Though during the recipe; if your double cream is all stuck in the whisk- add some milk. It’ll not only move the cream/butter out of the whisk but also add moisture. This moisture helps to get the butter from sticking inside of a whisk. Also, you get more yummy buttermilk!

Image steps!

In these steps in the most simple form; we add the double cream. Whisking it until it’s in a solid form then strain it. Make sure to squeeze the buttermilk out of it then wrap!

If you want you can add salt to the double cream to it then whisk it. You need to add the salt at the double cream stage to help incorporate it.
