Homemade White Butter

Yum
I used to love white butter back home , we had one special dairy shop who used to sold this butter and my parents always get that one and me and my sister finished that in no time. After coming to here in US, I saw Amul butter in shelf and was very happy to see that here, you know when you put dollop of that yellow goodness of hot steamy spicy pav bhaji, it changes the whole taste of pav bhaji, Oh you didn't try it yet, do it and you will love it. But because of some FDA regulations, Amul stop exporting butter and its other products for some time but thank goodness they are back again. so last week when I got Amul butter my son loved it and it was done in two days just like his mom used to finish white butter. He know how to make white butter because he made it in his summer camp, so to give him surprise I made it at home and he loved that too. I saw this last year on Cooksjoy blog and since then I was very tempted to try it. but didn't wanted to rush and ruin so check few more sites and video and then get comfortable how to make it and then I brought heavy cream and made it , believe me its worth it, you will love it. The whole process took me 30 minutes but it was all worth it.

Ingredients :

1 pint Heavy cream which is almost 500 ml.
4 tbsp. ice chilled water

For flavoring you can use salt or garlic or parsley , its endless possibilities the way you want to use it

Method:

You can use hand mixture or stand mixture what ever you have. I used hand mixture.

Take a big bowl if using hand mixture otherwise pour heavy cream in stand mixture jar.
First start with slow setting and mix it.
Heavy cream will become whipped cream.
Now go ahead and make one more step ahead and fast the process ,
Add 4 tbsp. of ice cold water. and beat the cream till it changes the color and leave buttermilk.
Beat till buttermilk and butter separated.
After mixing I got this much buttermilk from my cream. It will take good 20 minutes to beat it.
Once it all done, take a big sieve and strain the butter.
Leave this way till all water is out otherwise butter will go bad.
Once its all dry, use your hands and make sure no single drop of water is there.
Store it in container and put it in fridge and use it as required. Will last this  much as per your use. Mine will probably will finish in 4 days.

Just love this butter, brings back so many good memories.
