Default Homemade butter

I whipped some up yesterday and it is the best butter I have ever tasted. Its super easy too. Just put some heavy cream in your food processor and whip. Go past the whip cream phase and add some salt and your done. All kinds of possibilities here. Compound butter is great.

This is great. I've wanted to get some local cream from a dairy and do this for awhile.

How long does it last? Is it the same as store bought? I have some heavy creme in the fridge for a nice gourmet recipe that I was going to make. Wife didn't seem too keen on eating it though so I may need an alternate use. Actually I don't think we have a food processor right now. Only a blender. Maybe I will go and buy one later today so I can try this. Mmmmm butter.

There is really no difference between them. Use your blender. It just might be a little hard to get the stuff out of there.

Maybe a half pound. Just remember to put it in an air tight container.

Cool. My wife has wanted one for a while though. So I may just get a cheapy one for 50 or 75 bucks. Not going to bother with a Kitchen Aid unit or other pricey model for the amount of times I will use it.

I have 2. A Black n Decker Quick n Easy (the bigger one) and the Cuisnart Mini Prep (a smaller one).

Get the Black n Decker and you are good to go.

I have the mini prep that cubby is talking about. It is big enough for what I do.

I looked online at target and didn't see it. All the B&D is rated like 1 or 2 stars. The KA one at 99 bucks is 4.5 or higher. Is it that much better?
