Not really making any this year, i have loads of things i want to achieve.
One of which is to cut my Grocery budget down even more.I have kept a spreadsheet for the last 11 months and at the beginning i was averaging £350 a month the last 6 months between £200 -£250. I want to get this down as food is still being wasted.
Yesterday i went to see what NYE reductions i could find,Not a huge selection but what did catch my eye was cream...I don't like cream but we use butter..so i grabbed 2 and bright an early this morning i made some butter.
I have taken pictures step by step.
Its so easy it freezes ,you can mix it with herbs and garlic or whatever takes your fancy.
Cream reduced to 50p a pot
Empty into Mixer with balloon whisk
Start slow then build up spead to prevent splattering
You will eventually see it change colour and a milky residue (buttermilk)
Wash remainder of buttermilk off the butter
divide into portions
It made 1,635lbs of butter for a £1
and the buttermilk will be used in scones later.
