Every once in a while...



...I feel very domestic. 
As in old school... starting from scratch with all basic ingredients. 
Today was one of those days.



I was inspired by this blog post by Krista to try making butter. 



Into the mixer goes the heavy whipping cream...


Several minutes of high speed mixing brought me to here...
Notice the solids separated from the liquid....that liquid would be buttermilk. Cool huh!
 

 
 
After draining the buttermilk off and "washing" the butter...see Krista's recipe...

  I ended up with this nice ball of butter.







Remember the buttermilk I mentioned earlier... 
Oh yeah..pancakes for lunch baby!



During the midst of all that mixing I made a batch of salsa or maybe it would be pica de gallo depending on how you want to look at it.

Aren't veggies beautiful!?!

Everything looks wonerful! I tried making butter once and failed miserably. I can make whipped cream like crazy though! LOL!

Wanted to mention that the problem was I could never get the cream to solidify...it only got whippy. Maybe I was just impatient??

I just got back from a shop where I had honey butter for the first time. If you have some butter leftover (I know that I wouldn't by now...) throw some honey in it! Nom nom nom!
