Making homemade butter, it is this easy!

Really it is that simple. It does take some time, but it's so worth it!! Homemade butter is like homemade bread, once you start making it, you can't stop!!!

I have done this with both methods, these are the videos I used to learn how to make butter. I use my strainer with cheesecloth inside, then I rinse and use the cheese cloth to help squeeze the buttermilk out. I like the food processor method better, but when you go and break it, well you need an alternative!!! {no I didn't break it making butter, I broke it grating cheese, if you can believe it!!} Of course I won't mention I also broke one of my blenders!! {again, not making butter, blending a smoothie. I think the A who last washed dishes didn't attach it correctly, and I didn't check. I always check, except that one time.} Yeah I know, honestly that is what I get for trying to purchase the cheapest kitchen tools, they seriously don't last. Anyone have any suggestions on a good food processor or blender??
I have a Bosch, LOVE it, and it's about the only thing that has lasted through the years, of feeding a houseful. I hated the plastic junky blender attachments for the Bosch. I broke one of those a few years back too. Maybe it's me, I don't know. I looked at the food processor for the Bosch, but I am a bit scared of it, considering my experience with the blender.

The next to do, I believe will be yogurt. We eat tons of yogurt. I only buy the all natural, no growth hormones, and no sugar kinds. So that ton can cost a pretty penny. Anyone know of some good videos or tutorials to learn this skill?? I have read a bit about it, looks simple enough.

Really any comments on food processors or blenders?? I would love to hear from you!


  1. I really like the food slicer/dicer attachment for our Bosch. We have a kitchen-aide blender with a glass pitcher, it works great for smoothies.

  2. We have made butter before, but it involved baby food jars and a marble!! Oh... and lots and lots of shaking!! :)
