This is so simple to do, in fact is so simple many of us have done it my accident when trying to whip cream.
(I did have a chuckle I was in good company when Justine Schofield, the TV Chef who uses the Cuisine Companion accidently did it on her first Facebook Live for Tefal and the Cuisine Companion.)
So if you are 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 maxi, stop earlier if butter and butter milk have separated
Strain the buttermilk off, pressing as much out as possible. You can use either the steamer basket or a sieve. Set buttermilk aside for another dish or freeze.
Return butter solids to bowl
Speed 7 / 15 sec / stopper maxi
Strain off the water, pressing as much out as possible. Discard the water.
Repeat steps 7 to 9 until strained water runs clear
- Butter should be washed to remove as much buttermilk as possible to reduce spoiling
- I like using a butter bell to store my butter. It keeps its spreadable year round.
