How did you do it? I have done it by shaking cream in a jar. I was proving to someone how butter is made. I have had the start of butter when not paying attention while making whipped cream.

I used the whisk attatchment on the Kitchen Aid micer. Took about 20 minutes on high.

Do you have any tricks for squeezing all the liquid out of the butter?

How come your butter is so pale, ours is quite yellow.

Oh that can happen so quickly. Been there, done that. Have to stand there and never leave the side of the mixer for even a second.

Because you probably have put sugar in it for sweetening, all you can then use it for is pancakes, French toast, etc. That was French toast for us for about a week.

I remember reading that in the winter, the butter is pale, while in the summer, it is more yellow, which is why the turmeric started being added to the light butter, so it would look the same. Supposedly, it tastes the same, but you know how consumers are!

Years ago (had to be in the 70s), out of curiosity, I made some butter in a blender, beating some cream on medium speed. As soon as it started to turn, I reduced the speed, and added some ice, and it immediately congealed. Was very good, since I had gotten the cream from a local farm. Light colored, too, so it was probably in the winter.
