How to Make Buttermilk (and butter)!
But did you know you can make it? Yes, it's kind of a pain. Yes, it's easier to go to the store. But you can make it. Plus, you get the best byproduct ever: butter!
BUTTERMILK and BUTTER (it's a two-fer)
original recipe from Erin Huffstetler
~2 c. Heavy Whipping Cream (as much as your jar will allow)
1. Fill a jar that has a good seal halfway with heavy whipping cream (I used one of those protein shakers - take out the screen or blender ball).
3. Once it turns into whipped cream - keep shaking.
7. Knead butter under cold water to remove any buttermilk (so it doesn't spoil). Add salt if you'd like and then spread it on some bread and pat yourself on the back for making your own homemade butter!
