Depending on the year, butter is in or out of fashion. Too fatty, too one thing or another… But I like real, tasty butter, and fortunately I think that organic butter is back in the healthy column.
But… I would never have thought to make my own – conjuring images of a butter churn and lots of time. But these instructions (on Complete Health and Happiness) make it so easy, it’s well worth a try!
Most of the butter found in grocery stores is not healthy, because it is made from pasteurized milk. Homemade organic butter is very healthy as it still contains many of the vitamins and minerals found in raw milk. Butter is packed with Vitamin A. Vitamin A is vital for the health of our eyes, skins, tissues, membranes and teeth. It plays a role in gene transcription. Butter consists of mostly short and medium chain fatty acids. These fatty acids can protect against cancer.
- 2 cups organic heavy cream
