This is so simple to do, in fact is so simple many of us have done it by accident when trying to whip cream.
(I did have a chuckle that I was in good company when Justine Schofield, the TV chef, accidently did it on her first Facebook Live for the Tefal Companion.)
So if you accidentally find yourself whipping your cream too long, this recipe is for you! With the left over buttermilk, be sure to try my chocolate puddings.
Speed 7 / 7 min / stopper max¹
Strain the buttermilk off, pressing as much out as possible.² ³
Return butter solids to bowl
Speed 7 / 15 sec / stopper max
Strain off the water, pressing as much out as possible
Repeat steps 8 to 11 until strained water runs clear⁴
- Stop earlier if butter and butter milk have separated
- You can use either the steamer basket or a sieve
- Set buttermilk aside for another dish or it may be frozen
- Butter should be washed thoroughly, to remove as much buttermilk as possible
- I like using a butter bell to store my butter. It keeps it spreadable year round.
