Turmeric Butter

Just like my previous butter, this turmeric butter is easy to make! The only really extras would be turmeric and cumin. It’s quite tiring if you decide to hand-whisk the butter so make sure to use an electric mixer! Not only does this taste better than store-bought butter; the turmeric makes it much healthier to eat! You can also add this to pretty much anything you want, here is an article online which highlights the health benefits of turmeric.

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! This buttermilk will, however, taste like turmeric- it is up to personal preference whether you prefer that or not.

Whipped Cream

Whipped cream aids a lot of recipes whether savoury or sweet! It can also be whipped even further to become butter as well! You can add around 100g of icing sugar to this cream to turn it into frosting as well!

Why not try adding this to some hot chocolate as well? It tastes delicious as a topping!

You can use really any type of double cream- we decided we would use extra thick since it contains more fat which fastens the process. Make sure to stop whipping when it’s whipped enough as it will start to turn to butter!

White Olive Bread

This white olive bread recipe is moist and soft on the inside and tastes delicious! It’s a small level up from a basic white bread but the taste is much better! It’s great as a toast, especially with homemade butter and other condiments! Thus, naturally, it will work with a soup or stew very well and I as such recommend you use this bread with them!

Depending on the salt content of the olives- I would suggest using less salt if the olives are salty once drained. If not salty once drained you can add a pinch to enhance the flavour of the bread.

toasted flour recipe

Toasted flour is flour that has been cooked for a short amount of time to toast it. It adds a much more earthy and browned flavour to the flour which can give depth to many recipes. Whilst doing this it also kills the bad micro-organisms that can be harmful when you eat raw flour. I used this flour for cookie dough since you won’t have to worry about getting ill from it!

You can use it in pretty much any recipe! Especially pies- we suggest you try it out with our apple and pear pie! You can find any other recipes which you could use on our YouTube channel!

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.

Ghee

Making ghee is actually really easy to make! It’s basically just simmering butter over medium-low heat for around 10 to 15 minutes! Then just simply skim the top of the butter mixture to get rid of the daily excess that forms at the top of the ghee.
