I remember learning how to make butter as a kid, I think it’s one of those things every kid who grows up in the country does at least once. Same thing goes for churning ice cream and learning how to fish. I also recall that making butter from scratch is a labor of love, in that it usually took five kids taking turns to get the job done. It was fun, and the butter always turned out excellent. You know, soft and creamy and perfect for spreading. But as much as I like to savor the moment and take the time to enjoy what I’m doing; at this point in my life, I don’t have an hour to spare to churn butter. So I’ve found a better, faster, easier way to make butter right at home.
In your blender!
Making butter in your blender may not be nostalgic, but it gets the job done and the butter is still amazing, way better than store bought!
