    I'll have to try this in my Kenwood Leonie! We've been shaking it by hand which seems to take a lifetime! I have firm upper arms though!!

    Honestly its so quick! Within about ten minutes it was ready, and I never took the speed over 3, so it could probably be much quicker.

    I've used the recipe over on river cottage to make buttermilk scones. They are in the oven now, and when they cool, I shall smother them with the homemade butter... yummy!

    PS: Yes, it is most natural to chuckle away at *your* process ... of discovery, creativity and successes ;):D

    Wishing you many more butter-chuckling moments in 2006 and beyond! (Soooo, when are you going to attempt .... cheese? :whistle: ;):D

    I just made it manually in the last hour..... it's in the fridge now :D

    Took no longer than 20 minutes of shaking - although I did put it down to answer the phone at one stage.....
    :T :T Well done to you Hunnymonster!!! :T :T
    Tip: You don't need to put it down to answer the phone - if you are using the jar method ... take it with you, place it under your foot and roll it forward and backwards while you talk in the phone ;) Great exercise for your calf muscles too! If you are sitting - do the foot thing as well. See! Multi-tasking :D

    let us know how it tasted!

  • I was using the 1 litre yoghurt maker shaker method ;) It tastes great, but sadly there wasn't enough buttermilk for the intended use (making proper Irish soda bread) :( My cream must have been a bit thick or something.

    In many cases it helps if you say where you are - someone with local knowledge might be able to give local specifics rather than general advice

    Ha ha dont set me off on cheese, im still grinning about the butter!

    Ended up making three lots and have already used the first one. The scones were absolutely delicious. I made them with my butter and buttermilk so they were very rich.

    Happy new year everyone :-)

    Nope - all is well - had to sort kids out on their bikes too :D

    Have to say - easiest 4 mins of butter making ever. Just draining all my buttermilk off and will be a-patting my butter soon.

    Then it's a cup of tea and a nice slice of buttered toast I suppose. 1a_y_grin.gif
