Learn To Make Organic Butter In Minutes & Never Buy It Again...

Most of the butter found in grocery stores is not  healthy, because it is made from pasteurized milk. Homemade organic butter is very healthy as it still contains many of the vitamins and minerals found in raw milk.

Butter is packed with Vitamin A.  Vitamin A is vital for the health of our eyes, skins, tissues, membranes and teeth. It  plays a role in gene transcription. Butter consists of mostly short and medium chain fatty acids. These fatty acids can protect against cancer.

How to Make Organic Butter

Ingredients

  • 2 cups organic heavy cream
  • sea salt, to taste

Method

  • Pour cream into food processor and process for about 10 minutes.  It will turn to a thick whipped cream first.
  • Continue processing until it turns  grainy and separate into butter and butter milk.  Drain buttermilk from butter.
  • Scrape butter from the sides.  Put in a clean bowl.  Place your butter into a colander and strain off the buttermilk.
  • Rinse the butter with cold water, gently turning the butter with a spoon while the cold water runs over it until the water runs clear.
  • When the butter is clean, squeeze more  liquid from butter using wooden paddles or spoons to smash butter and pour off liquid.
  • You can keep it in a jar or bowl, and store it in the fridge, or the freezer. This type of butter can last for several months before going bad.

You can also make amazing compound butters which kids love. According to MotherEarthLiving.com these are some fun combos to try with softened, unsalted butter:

  • Lemon zest and snipped parsley
  • Snipped fresh Thai basil, chopped garlic, and chopped, drained, pickled ginger
  • Crumbled feta cheese and chopped kalamata olives
  • Grated Parmesan cheese and snipped fresh basil
  • Grated ginger and sesame oil
  • Snipped fresh cilantro, lime zest, and Sriracha, or hot sauce
  • Coarsely ground black pepper and sea salt
  • Orange zest, chopped fresh, or dried cranberries and snipped fresh sage
  • Chopped pecans and honey
  • Orange zest, maple syrup, and blueberries

Absolutely wonderful but where can you find unpasteurized organic cream?

Reply

    Mountain View grocery?

    No, unfortunately. Everything sold is ultra pasteurized.

Yes there is a reason dairy products are pasteurized.

All butter is made from cream. NEVER from milk, pasteurized or otherwise

Pasteurization has saved lives not harmed them.

WE use to milk goats & make butter & that was 65yrs ago

This is a good reason for pasteurisation apart from preventing spoilage. Organisms for TB, brucellosis, listeria E.col 0157 etc all transmitted in milk are killed and people don’t end up with these severe illnesses. People forget the reason it was introduced.

Shouldn’t this be on the Tim Vine Appreciation page. “Never buy it again” ha ha – just use all that “free cream”.

I find it amusing to have organic products from a species that didn’t exist until humans (& selective/cross breeding techniques) brought it into existence! ?

    Definition of “organic” is in order here. What does this word mean to you, Kerrilyn?

    Reply

    Cynthia Davis A scam for large corporations to make money. Or perhaps a way for people to naively think they are helping the environment going organic when they are actually helping nothing.

I have been making my own butter for ages. I use my Kenwood mixer. I save the resultant buttermilk and us it for making bread.
