Butter – Video Tutorial

Hi Guys

We are regularly asked questions about how to make butter.  For some reason, people tend to look at the recipe and instructions in the EDC and think it looks complicated.  But it’s not….in fact it is so easy and somewhat fulfilling.  It’s one of those things that you will do over and over again, and despite the ease with with the Thermomix can turn the cream into butter, you will rave to your friends about how you make butter. It really is impressive, and most people just don’t know how simple it is.

So, with much trepidation and the pure embarrassment, you can now see what we really look like, in our first ever clip on How to make Butter

PS…….no laughing

    Thanks for the video gals. Picked up some great hints here re straining and pushing the butter against the walls of the bowl. I made butter yesterday starting with Creme fraiche, which I’ve found gets the best results and has a fantastic flavour closer to French butter…. I also leave it under the sink for a day to get it’s own ‘cultures’ happening, haven’t killed anyone yet! and the taste is fantastic. The buttermilk is currently in the fridge being transformed into buttermilk pannacotta.

    thanks for that.

    i like to put 2 large tablespoons of yoghurt in with the cream.
    leave it overnight and then proceed with the butter making.
    it makes for butter and buttermilk that has a delicious ‘cutured’ tangy taste.
    cheers. sue ferrari. (thelma and souise)

    Hi Ladies
    Great job on a very well presented “how to” video. You certainly have inspired me to have a go! Hope we will see more from you soon.

    thanks for the tutorial, i have made heaps of it but liked how you strained yours, i usually use my hands but that can be a problem as our hands are hot… also going to try Carli and Sue’s suggestions for a bit of variation as well

    Loved the butter tutorial, where did u get the silicone moulds? How long does the butter last in the fridge, approx?

      Just use any silicon mould – i it doesnt need to be anything special. You could even use silicon cupcake moulds or ice cube trays. Depending on what you add to your butter (i.e. if you add salt it will preserve it a little longer), but the butter itself will be ok in the fridge for a couple of weeks

    Great video ladies, can we have more of them? 😉

    Just a quickie, is it preferable to use whipping or pure cream to make butter? Probably a silly question but wondering how it might change the butter result? I have bought the same kind you have in the video from IGA and plan to make butter and scones tonight (with the buttermilk).

    Also, how much salt would you add to butter from 600ml cream?
    Advice on herbs etc to flavour it after?

    Sorry for the 21 Q’s!
