Yes, that's right! I have been playing with the KitchenAid mixer. Making butter! Cindy and I were talking at work about making 'things', and I got to wondering, if you could make butter with a KitchenAid mixer. Well, you can! It can be a little messy mind you, but you can make butter - yummy home made butter. Now, making butter is a rather expensive thing to do, unless you live near a farm (or have your own), because the cost of heavy cream is generally more than purchasing butter out right. But what the hey? I wanted to try it. So, I did.
Once again, I didn't take pictures of the process. I was not planning on posting it. WeaveThings / Butter? Hmm, but I say again, what the hey?
I did do a little test. I purchased 3 pints of organic heavy cream. Let them sit out to reach close to room temperature. Then one I poured into the Black & Decker food processor with the plastic blade. It fluffed up super quick and then just stopped. I had to keep taking off the top and scraping the foam down. It wasn't too much fun, but I did produce butter!
Next, some yummy buttermilk waffles from the new issue of Cook's Illustrated magazine that just arrived yesterday!
WeightWatchers, you'll just have to weight! Ugh :)
