Where can I buy a solid useable butter maker? I am interested in practicality not decoration.

Thanks

I'm not sure the link will work but it seems that you need very little in the way of equipment.

Love your name!

I'll try that again!

Apparently shaking cream in a plastic milk carton works - didn't for me but not sure that I can get the right sort of cream here in Latvia. If butter making from cream was so easy then we would not have any cream here in Latvia as any cream would be turned to butter by the time it arrives in the small villages on the dirt roads.

Hi Alex

I have an article on the blog for making butter with an electric whisk

It's very easy. And tastes great.

I remember one Christmas, I was 8, 9, 10, somewhere in there, anyway, I was asked to make the whipped cream. We had a stand mixer (electric whisk) and I had put the cream in the bowl, turned on the mixer, and got distracted. (Well, it was Christmas! I had presents!) I was pulled back to reality when a holler from the kitchen had me running. eeek

I had inadvertently made butter! big_laugh

My Mother, being a country girl, took care of the results, and I hovered over the next bowl of cream to make sure I didn't mess it up. embarassed

If you can't be a shining example, be a terrible warning!

I joked the other day that for breakfast I had toast, marmalade and butter and all I needed to do was to make the butter instead of buying it and it was all mine - it was a joke remark - I am going to have a go at that with my food mixer and see where we get. I seem to be getting rather nerdy about food, its all you guys faults !!

I have reached an age where my train of thought often leaves the station without me...

Link here for making butter, you have to wash it and add salt (should you want it salty).  Such fun!

I'll try that again!
