Just be sure to use the cream sold for whipping, and not the ultra pasturised stuff used for coffee. It won't make butter, no matter how much you whip! wink

I normally use double cream for whipping rather than whipping cream so I assume that will work OK.

Thanks for the info and also that link TA, it sure seems simple and gives me something to do before I go off down the chimneys !!

warm weather is a hard wish to grant, it takes time for me to work the charms, give me 4 months and you will start to see the results, now where is my reward, I have had a look at your chimney and it is too narrow ? but your wish is granted.

I made butter with a class of mine a couple of times oon their 'be a celt day'  They made it by whisking by hand some cream in a bowl for a VERY long time (a least it seemed that way)!  The end result looked good though (we couldnt try it due to Health and Safety regs; food made in the outdoors!)eeek

You mean to say the the poor Cow spent hours eating grass and then had to go through the pangs of milking and then you didn't eat the butter. What do the French say when you mention regulations, Ah bon isn't.

I thought the French ignored rules that they don't agree with?  I'd have been very disappointed if I'd spent all that time and energy for nothing.

I'll try that again!

There you are correct they ignore all the one's they don't like and the expression they ah bon is sort of is that so, really and so on.

I worked for a long time at Dorking for the milk marketing board as a milk collector and never had any problems with drinking the milk straight from the tank, best when they stopped it before I got there then I had good cream on the top. Ps when blade in the tank goes too fast you sometimes get the cream turn to butter.
