Marathon Butter!

Recommended Posts

This time last year, I was taking part in the London Marathon. This year, while watching it on TV, I decided to try and make butter a la Home Farmer mag....and succeeded!


The strange thing is, I feel almost as proud of my achievement this year - and it didn't take anywhere near the time or hurt nearly as much!!


Think I'll stick to this for exercise now!

Sorry for stretching the page!


The bit they don't mention in the mag is that, after about 5 minutes, all you have is whipped cream, spread all around the milk carton and you feel a bit daft shaking something that feels empty. But carry on and then all of a sudden you see something yellow appear and it all moves about again.


It gives you such an incredible sense of satisfaction. I put it into little ramekins in the fridge so I can get one out each day to use. Today's has been used up already as I've just made a rhubarb crumble!


Richard's now using the buttermilk to make bread!

Well done and a great picture. ASDA has cream 400ml double reduced on offer to £1 this weekend and I bought some yesterday and made mine in the kenwood - I have bad joints and all that shaking etc...... It is very yummy and from a 400ml cream carton I got 320g butter - not bad really. And I made scones with the buttermilk and the butter - they were the best.
