    Leonie, just spoken to electricshopping and they ARE out of stock!! But, her said they're expecting stock in 3-5 working days, so I'll probably just keep my order with them. I'm off work this week and was hoping to play with it!! Boo Hoo!! Just have to make more butter and lemon curd instead :)

    Hmmm they said they had stock when I ordered mine as well, very naughty of them!

    I'm going to do a bit more research into the pasta maker and then place my order all at once if I decided I have to have one. In the meantime, you must let me know how you get on with the bangers... I cant wait!

    Less than five minutes later I had butter! Hubby doesn't like butter too much as I usually buy salted but he loved this. Very happy! :D

    I rinsed it and squeezed it lightly and pressed it. When I came to spread it I noticed a few beads of moisture in there. Should I have pressed it really hard?

    I made scones with the butter milk and they were yummy! Ooh dear, weigh in tomorrow :o

    I was given a pair for Christmas - they were originally destined to be ornaments, but are now going to be used regularly :) I wasn't really sure how I should be using them. If anybody has any tips?

    Buttermilk pancakes are a weekend breakfast or brunch favorite in our house with any of the following toppings:
    frozen or fresh blueberries ( in pancakes or on top), (low fat) vanilla yoghurt, Maple syrup, or brown sugar and (fresh squeezed - if poss.) lemon juice.
    Treat everyday as your last one on earth! and one day you will be right.

    Roxanne, for buttermilk pancakes, is it just normal pancake batter but using buttermilk instead of milk??

    Buttermilk makes a good fruit cake too - and it`s just as easy to make your own yoghurt

    Yes, you can use in place of milk and get a sense of if you like it or want to reduce the amount of b'milk used next time.

    I like Hairy Woubit's fruitcake idea.
    Also, about 30 years ago I worked in the North Cascade Mountains in Washington State, USA on the annual maintainance of a 41 mile National Park Service trail contract and we used to make our own yoghurt each day. We would put some plain youhurt into a quart of heated milk (made from milk non-instant powder). Then I would add about 2 or 3 desert spoons of the plain youghurt to the milk and put into a container with a lid, wrap it up in my sleeping bag and leave it to culture while I worked all day. At night I would put the container into the stream to stop the culture and to keep it very cold. Next morning I would eat it on my oatmeal or granola and start the whole process over fro the next day. Sometimes I would have a little honey & vanilla or maple syrup to add, being sure to reserve some of the plain yog. for the next day. Delish! However, although it seems like only yesterday, doing it in the kitchen is quite a bit easier these days!

    Regarding shaking the jar, I'm sure I read somewhere about if you get a round jar and have little kids, just get them to roll the jar to each other!!!
    In fact, butter-making sounds like it'd be loads of fun for kids!! I used to love baking and making bread when I was little, it would've been sooo cool to eat the bread with my own butter *sigh*
