Well, I may have answered that question in her mind this past week when I made butter.
It is really my friend Jennifer's fault.
She sent me a link to a blog that she knew I would enjoy.
The second post I ran across was about making butter and I was sold.
I'm not sure whats wrong with me that I see something like that and feel like I must try it.
I have discovered it is not cheaper at all to make your own butter so I don't even have that to lean on.
This blog linked to America's Test Kitchen for full instructions on making butter. I also looked around a little in the bloggy web and found some other ideas. I used this recipe for the first batch. I wanted to try the cultured butter too so I did make a batch from the Test Kitchen recipe. Both were really good in my opinion.
I have a lot of buttermilk if you need any
come on over for toast....
I made stuffed mushrooms tonight for snacking. A family friend made them and I had them in Dallas when we were there. They are very easy and very good...
