Hello everyone! I have another tutorial for you, and this time we’re going to learn how to make whipped cream, butter, and buttermilk at home. This is a real simple project to tackle, and you’ll save yourself loads of money at the grocery store. Ready to get started? Let’s go!
Things you’ll need:
1. Heavy whipping cream
2. A large bowl (you want one that’s fairly tall, to prevent the cream from getting all over your kitchen)
3. A mixer
4. Tupperware to place your dairy in once you’re done
Pour your heavy whipping cream into your bowl, and get your mixer ready. Mix on the highest setting you can without getting cream everywhere. Alternatively, if you don’t own a mixer, you can place your heavy whipping cream inside a mason jar, secure the lid, and shake it up. This process will just take longer.
Mix the cream until it thickens up, and becomes whipped cream. Make sure you don’t mix too much, as you will see it become butter before too long. Stop mixing, and set aside a small amount of whipped cream inside some tupperware. Add sugar to sweeten the whipped cream, as little or as much as you like. Whipped cream is done!
Continue to mix your cream. You’ll see it start to turn yellow.
As you mix, you’ll see that your butter is getting wet. When it looks like it does in the image above, stop your mixing, and wash your hands. Then begin pressing the butter down, kneading it, to get all the buttermilk out of it. Place a strainer over the tupperware bowl you’ll be storing your buttermilk in, and pour the buttermilk into the strainer.
Once your buttermilk is stored away, you’ll see that you have some pretty new butter! Store this as well.
And there you have it! Homemade whipped cream, butter, and buttermilk! Enjoy!
