    Question MYO butter

    I routinely make my own butter (it's really easy to do) in my kitchenaid stand mixer ... but I am wondering for others that do the same, what do you put in to make compound butter?

    I made some for Easter, and used garlic, minced scallion, sea salt and fresh ground peppercorn...

    what else can you put in there (that you have personally tried) that would taste good?


    Thanks in advance.

    I make sweet and savory butter spreads. I add 1) cinnamon & honey,
    2) parsley, thyme & garlic,
    3) Minced jalapeņos and cumin
    And soooo many more! Have fun, and enjoy!

    PS. I roll mine in parchment and foil and freeze mine because I make it in bulk. I have no issues thawing and using.

    I've made other butters (honey for homemade challah bread, cinnamon sugar for toast, etc)-- but none of them were compound butters except for the last one ...

    I would like to find out what you put in your compound butter like for use on steaks or other meats, fish, etc...

    pour in heavy cream (I use organic heavy cream), use the whisk first -- turn it on -- listen for sloshing... when you hear that, shut the mixer off and drain off the fluid... switch to the paddle -- add in your sea salt or whatever you are flavoring with -- and beat the butter solids ... you may have to drain a 2nd time... when the butter solids stick to the side of the bowl, it's done.



    WAYYYYYYYY healthier than store bought butter.

    how long does this last? and how much butter would you get from a pint of cream?

    this sounds like a project the kids would love to 'help' with.

    in our house, butter never lasts very long... we use it for everything... but a pint of heavy cream usually gets me about 2 sticks.

    Thank you ever so much.

    I love butter too. if I didn't have butter or olive oil, I wouldn't be able to cook.

    I am going to put heavy cream on my list so we can make butter this weekend.
