Thank you for the links Paul!
Twilliams that looks perfect!
Recent butter prices and the stream notice for today got me thinking. Has anyone ever tried making butter in a Meat mixer?
Ridley Acres can’t wait to see the responses on this.
Ridley Acres Great idea. I have never done it, but I saw where you can make butter with a Kitchen Aid mixer.
It can’t be very hard. Growing up, my dad drove truck picking up milk from dairies. I would ride along with him any chance I got. There is nothing like a really cold glass if milk from the vat. I would take a thermos and fill it up. By the end of the route there would be a chunk of butter in the thermos just from bouncing in the truck all day.
Ridley Acres no but I can see someone trying it soon. Great question
I know that you need to willing to spend some time to make butter
craigrice I’m thinking someone with a motorized mixer needs to take up this challenge.
I haven’t done it, but I don’t think its rocket science either, (more like food science).
Take some cream and agitate it any way you want, and you will get the butter fat solids to separate from the liquid. Look at any old-timey butter churn and you can see there is not a whole lot going on there.
processhead you can put the cream in a 1 gal. glass jar and shake it up and down till your arms fall off lol saw my granddad make some once for my mother because she said she missed the taste of it from when she grew up.
I would think it would take at least a couple gallons of cream to work in a motorized #50 mixer. At the end of it, you will have some expensive butter.
