 Butter Recipe

fresh homemade butter

This is absolutely the easiest recipe for children to make butter. Just one ingredient, cream. Oh, and 15minutes of shaking a jam jar. 

KEY POINTS

 Preparation Time:  15 - 30 minutes  Cooking Time:   None
 How Difficult  Very Easy  Freeze?   No
 Servings

1 pat of butter

Remember to supervise your children whilst they are cooking.

INGREDIENTS

I can of double cream which is at room temperature. If taking it out of the fridge, leave it in a warm room for an hour. This will speed up the butter making process.

1 jam jar with a lid

METHOD

YOUR CHILD - Pour cream into the jam jar so that it is about a quarter full.

Don't fill up any more because the cream needs lots of room to move around in the jar

 

Ingredients for butter

 
YOUR CHILD - put the lid securely on the jar (adult to check) and then shake vigorously.

Shake it up and down so that the cream hits the top and bottom of the jar. Don't stop!

 

Shaking cream to make butter

YOUR CHILD - The butter has formed. Discard the buttermilk around it and pour cold water into the jar. Shake lightly for 5 seconds then throw the water away. Repeat until the water is clear and you have removed all the buttermilk from the outside of the butter  



YOUR CHILD - Now squeeze any remaining butter milk from the butter. This is important because buttermilk quickly goes sour. Squeeze the butter with your hand or the back of a spoon. Throw away the squeezed out butter milk.


YOUR CHILD - The butter will be slightly warm from being squeezed so put it in the fridge for 10 minutes.

It's now ready to use.



YOUR CHILD - Make a jam sandwich or whatever sandwich takes your fancy using the ultra fresh butter you have just made.

THE COW WAS HEARD TO MUTTER,
IT'S EASY TO MAKE HOMEMADE BUTTER!
