Butters












Homemade Butter

1 clean quart canning jar
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1/8 teaspoon salt
herbs (optional)

Add heavy cream to the jar and put the lid on. Cover the top with a cloth to keep from leaking. Shake the jar until the butter forms which takes about 20 minutes. Add the salt or herbs when most of the shaking is done. You'll know when it's almost a whipped consistency. After draining excess buttermilk off of the butter, rinse the butter in cold water.


Honey Butter

1 stick butter or margarine, softened
1/2 cup honey

Mix together until smooth. Store covered in the refrigerator. Makes 1 cup.


Pecan Butter

2 cups finely chopped pecans
1 cup butter or margarine, softened
1/2 cup Powdered Sugar

Mix together until smooth. Store covered in the refrigerator. Makes 2 cups.
