Homemade Raw Grassfed Butter
I had bought a quart of raw grassfed cream for Thanksgiving and I didn't use it fast enough so it started to sour. I googled what to do with the cream once it sours and people said the butter you make with it tastes great. I put about 8-10 ounces of cream into my stand mixer and mixed away. After about 5 minutes, the cream started to turn yellow and I got excited! It finally turned into a large clump of butter. I poured the liquid (buttermilk) from the bowl into a canning jar and I rinsed the butter until the liquid was clear. Then I added himalayan salt, mixed it in, and poured it into a dish.
We have been wanting to get a cow or goat for dairy. I have wanted a goat and my husband wants a cow. After making my own raw butter, I am leaning more towards a cow because the cream separates naturally and I can make so many things with it.
