I will be looking for the recipe but if you could PM me the link when you do just in case I miss it. Thanks.

I have never made homemade butter but have come close several times. LOL I like stiff homemade whipped cream.
I have been looking, but haven't found a "microplane" that has smaller holes than my flat grater. I have a lemon zester, but that makes long pieces.

Thanks for the microplane reminder. I will be near a chef's supply store this afternoon.

I will try to remember to PM you when I post the recipe.

The one second from left is pretty fine. It has no handle like the others.

TL, you might check the hardware store for a microplane if you can't find one. That's where they initally came from, an implement for wood projects.

All the best, Harry! Good luck!

+1 hardware stores are a great place to find them.

If you have a small, locally owned one like Ace or Tru-Value they also usually carry Lodge CI and canning supplies too!

As I recall, the wife of a Lee Valley Hardware employee discovered that something that can smooth wood made a great zester. And they made a lot of money from that idea.

Now you guys tell me. I was at the hardware store today. I only looked in the kitchen section.

The "good news" is that the health food store was out of lemons, so I won't need to zest any lemon just yet.

Looks like you had a great time. And the Yankees won last night, which always makes it more fun.
