Who doesn’t love butter?
I mean, there will be many who sneakily spread it on to their morning toast, claiming it to be a low-fat, dairy free, almond tasting, soya-something alternative, but in reality, it’s good old butter.
I’ve been trying to get people excited about this for a long time.
Butter isn’t bad for you you know.
I’m not saying you should demolish a whole block whilst watching Titanic or anything, but a little here and there is, I believe, good for you.
And anyway, it said so in Vogue.
A whole feature dedicated to a product that for a while, has been avoided.
Look at Julia Child and the classic chefs like Mr. Roux-all ancient, all fabulous.
I want to be fabulous when I’m ancient therefore I shall eat butter.
Who’s with me?!

I wanted to show people how easy it is to make butter at home, so I made a small batch just for you…
You will need:
A whisk-preferably electric
A small 150ml tub of good quality double cream
A bowl of cold water
A pinch of salt-add more or less depending on your taste buds
Whisk your cream and salt until it forms a light yellowy ball and releases the buttermilk.
Once in to a solid, butter-like structure, place in to the bowl of cold water.
Gently squeeze until your water is cloudy with excess buttermilk.
Drain, re-fill with cold water and repeat until the water remains clear.
Then I guess it’s time for Titanic and a spoon…
