The Good Life 2
The double cream was poured into the food processor and whipped with the whipper until it stopped. It might have stopped because the stuff was solid or because the contact in the processor had got very hot, but I changed over to the main metal blade and carried on.
It turned into lovely pale yellow butter and I poured the buttermilk into a jar and I hope to make it into scones tomorrow.
800 ml of double cream made about 700 gm butter and 100 ml buttermilk and a lot of washing up.
If the butter keeps well I may do this again. Cheap and very cheerful, especially if the scones are better than those I usually make.
