Personally, my phrase “homemade oil” is associated with early childhood. I remember myself small, sitting with my grandmother in a cozy canopy behind a wooden barrel with sour cream. We often made butter with her at home, softly humming old favorite songs.
For a number of my acquaintances, the same phrase causes quite different associations. Hearing it, they represent a simple, useful product, and at the same time they correlate cooking oil at home with a huge headache. Yes, not everyone understands that making homemade butter is pretty easy.
Why cook homemade butter
Make homemade oil should be the people who love themselves and natural products. Of course, if you eat quality store oil, then nothing terrible will happen. But you should be aware that this product, unlike homemade butter, is not made from cream alone.
Oil manufacturers are allowed to add dyes, bacterial preparations, preservatives, flavors, emulsifiers, stabilizers, etc. to their products. Do you want to eat fresh bread spread with stabilizers and preservatives in the morning? Not? That's the same thing. And it’s not a fact that the oil you bought contains only what we have listed. It may consist of more unexpected and dangerous components. Do you still think that cooking butter at home is a whim or stupidity? Hardly. Well, then we will learn to make healthy butter.
Homemade butter from the collected cream in a jar in 15 minutes
To cook about 80 g of awesome tasty and healthy homemade butter, you need about 300-330 ml of cream. You can collect them from homemade fat milk. Just take a small half or mini dipper and collect the cream from the milk that is on top. Of course, you can select them with a spoon, but the collection process will be delayed, and in fact our task is to make home-made butter as quickly as possible.
Pour the cream into a half-liter jar. If you want to beat the butter at home with a can, you need to take up no more than two-thirds of the cream. Therefore, if you have about 330 ml of cream, a 500 ml can will be an ideal vessel for whipping homemade butter. Beating more oil at a time, taking away a lot of cream and using a jar more capacious, will be a little harder and longer. It is better to choose a container with some grooved areas, notches, because, using a jar with smooth walls, you risk breaking a vessel with not yet formed oil. Especially good is a can with a hermetically closed lid.
So, bay selected cream in a jar, close it with a lid. Take the glass container and start shaking the cream so that it hits the bottom of the jar, then the lid with which it is closed. After 5-10 minutes you will notice that small particles of oil are starting to form on the glass. Shake the jar for another four minutes. If you opened the lid and saw the already-formed shmat of homemade oil, you can stop stirring and start washing the creamy product.
First, drain the muddy liquid (buttermilk) from the jar, then rinse the oil under running cold water. Rinse homemade oil can be directly in the bank until such time as the transparent water runs out of the vessel. This is the simple way you can cook the butter at home for 15 minutes.
Attention: the milk from which you take the cream should be at room temperature. If you begin to beat the cream too warm, the oil can turn out to be watery. And to work with a cold product will have much longer. Then beating can be delayed for 20-25 minutes.
To get the oil at home longer stored, it must be slightly salted. After that, the oil should be wrapped in foil and put in the refrigerator.
Oil in a can of purchased warm cream in 4 minutes
You can beat the butter in a jar of cream in five minutes or even a little faster. But for this you better buy fat cream. Of course, even very fat, but cold cream will need to be whipped for at least 15 minutes.
Before you start cooking homemade butter, chilled cream should be held for about 10 hours outside the refrigerator so that they warm up evenly and well. After that, you have to shake the jar for about four minutes. When the oil is gone, you need to carry out all the actions mentioned above (drain the buttermilk, rinse, salt, etc.).
Homemade butter in a modern hand butter churn for 3 minutes
Not everyone wants to shake a jar of even those 5-15 minutes unsuitable for whipping homemade butter. Many simply consider it disreputable to cook a product in a vessel not intended for this purpose. If this process also does not appeal to you, then you can buy a modern manual mini churn. To be honest, it also resembles a jar. This churn closes on both sides of the lids. Cream is poured on the side where the silicone pad with holes is placed.
To make 125 g of butter, you will need 220 ml of farm cream. You just slowly pour the cream, which seep into the jar through the holes, and put them to stand. Well, if the air temperature in the house where the cream is, will reach 25 ° C. The cream should settle in the churn for about 8 hours. After that, you only need to shake the churn on the strength of about three minutes.
Now open the cap on the side of the churn, which is intended for the infusion of cream. Scrape a few spoons of the remaining liquid through the holes. After that, pour a little water into the butter churn and rinse the oil. Drain the water, open the churn from the back. Take a spoon and remove the oil.
Cooked homemade butter, salt and refrigerate. With such a special device, you can not do the usual homemade oil, and with the addition of various ingredients. For example, girls can beat butter with honey. But men like garlic homemade butter.
Going back in time or cooking in a wooden churn
You can also search the wooden churn. Not only does such a churn look rather colorful, it will also provide an opportunity to remember how you used to make homemade butter with your grandmother (well, of course, if this was in your life).
A wooden oiler usually consists of a mortar, into which cream is poured, a lid preventing splashing of the beating product and a crush, a kind of stick (it is beaten up). This stick, at the end of which there are round holes with holes or another figure, is inserted into the hole on the lid. After you pour the sour cream into the mortar, put the lid on with the stick inserted into the hole, and start to beat the butter.
Remember that sour cream pour the churn to the top can not be, otherwise it will crawl out, spray. It is better if you fill a third with a sour cream. Beat the homemade butter in a mortar for about 15-20 minutes.
If a piece of sour cream is still crawled out, you can collect it and, opening the butter dish, return the escaped product to its place. When sour cream stops jumping, and you hear gurgling sounds, it can only mean one thing - butter has been whipped to such an extent that buttermilk has already stood out. Take a few more minutes and you can pull out the oil.
If you urgently need to get about 250 grams of butter, for example, to bake a cake, and you have no time to heat the cream, you can use a food processor. He quickly put in the butter, even chilled cream. Many food processors come immediately with a special knife for whipping butter.
To make the butter in the combine, simply pour the cream into the bowl of the unit and start to beat them until the buttermilk leaves. Almost 250 g homemade butter is obtained from 400 ml of bazaar fat cream. When the oil is ready, pour it into a colander and rinse. If, when preparing pastries, you did not use all the butter, you can wrap its residue in parchment paper and put your own natural product in the refrigerator.
Making butter at home with a mixer
To make 450 g of butter, you will need about a liter of not too thick sour cream. About 600 g of homemade butter can be obtained from fatter sour cream. This method is good because with a mixer, as well as a combine, you can quickly make butter from a cooled dairy product.
Before you put the average density of sour cream in the refrigerator, it is better to pour it into a bowl, in which you will then beat the butter. First, the speed of the mixer can be put higher, but after a few minutes, when the sour cream turns into an oily crumb, reduce the speed of your hand-held apparatus. Otherwise, everything will start to fly apart.
Beat the oil should be until the baby starts to swim in the whitish water. After that, drain the oil in a colander to get rid of the liquid, but do not rush to crush it into a solid lump. Only after thoroughly rinsing the oil crumb under cold water can you begin to form balls of homemade oil. Wrap the pieces of butter in cling film and fold it into the freezer.
Cooking butter in a saucepan of frozen cream (non-waste production)
Beat frozen cream in a food processor or a mixer, there is no particular need. Yes, and whisk completely thickened cream using technology a little problematic. This can be done with an ordinary tablespoon.
To get 400 grams of homemade fatty oil, you need half a liter of thick purchased cream, a saucepan, a spoon and a dumb time. Pour the cream into the saucepan and start stirring them. After a few minutes, the cream will grasp even more and the stirring process will be tighter. You, in fact, will just have to carefully crush the cream on the wall of the saucepan.
At first, such an occupation seems a bit tedious, since it is not known how much more thick cream will have to be kneaded. But when you see how buttermilk starts to stand out, you realize that some 5-6 minutes are left before the process is completed. This evolved vodichki, as in the previous methods of cooking oil at home, you need to get rid of. Do not rush to pour it into the sink, because you can collect the buttermilk in a bowl and, replacing it with milk, make delicious pastries. It turns out that 500 ml of heavy cream, if properly treated, will provide you with not only 400 g of butter, but 100 ml of buttermilk for charlotte.
To quickly get rid of the released liquid, while kneading the cream near one of the sides of the saucepan, slightly tilt the container. Then the buttermilk will run to the opposite side of the pan without being mixed with butter. Get homemade butter, using this method, you can, without haste, for 10 minutes. Since you are unlikely to quickly eat 400 grams of fatty oil, part of it will be reasonable to freeze.
How to make homemade butter
If you want to get a perfectly smooth piece of oil of beautiful shape, then you need a plate and manual dexterity. Separated from buttermilk, washed and squeezed from water, put the oil in a deep plate. The piece should be of such size that it can roll lightly on your dish. Now start tossing some oil. This will remove excess water and make the surface of the product smoother. Oil must not only throw, but roll on a plate. Using a plate, you get a piece of oil, free from the remnants of water with a smooth surface and the correct oval shape.
Recipes for making original homemade butter

In the process of heating, foam will appear on the surface.
Oil should be simmered for at least half an hour. During this time, you need to periodically mix it. Otherwise, the precipitate formed may stick to the bottom of the pan. Toward the end of the cooking process, you must carefully remove the foam.

The resulting sandwich butter wrapped in paper or foil and sent to storage in the refrigerator.
What is needed?
Perhaps almost everyone knows that butter is made from cream.
Where to buy cream? If you have relatives, acquaintances or friends engaged in the maintenance and breeding of cattle, then you can contact them. But first make sure that all animals are completely healthy (do not take your word for it, ask for the conclusion of a veterinarian and other references attached). Homemade cream, of course, more tasty and healthy.
If there is no opportunity to buy a natural product, then go to the store and buy cream there.
Carefully study the composition, pay attention to the fat content (the higher it is, the better). It is best to purchase a product manufactured in your region or in a nearby one, as long-term transportation can affect important characteristics.
In principle, you can use milk, but there must be cream in it. That is, skimmed or processed in other ways just will not work. Milk should be whole and as fat as possible. The ideal option would be homemade, so if you can, buy it. But you need to get cream out of milk, and to do this, put the product in the fridge and periodically remove the fat top, putting it in a separate container.
How to do?
How to make homemade butter? It is very simple. You need to whip the cream, and you can do it in several ways:
- Проще всего осуществлять взбивание с помощью миксера, блендера или кухонного комбайна. Погрузите насадку в чашу и начинайте процесс.
- Следующий рецепт предполагает не взбивание, а взбалтывание. Сливки нужно перелить в большую бутыль или банку, хорошо и плотно закрыть её и активно трясти до тех пор, пока не получится масло.
- The longest and most time-consuming way is whipping with a whisk. Get ready to make an effort and periodically change hands (they will definitely get tired).
How to understand that the oil is ready? First, the cream will be air (these are required for the preparation of butter creams). Continue the process. Then a thick light yellow mass will begin to separate. This is fat. Then the mass will begin to stray into grains, and at the same time an almost transparent light liquid will separate. When the separation is complete, you can proceed to the next stage.
Take a colander and cover it with gauze folded several times, put oil on it so that liquid remains from the grains. Next, squeeze the oil using a spoon or your own hands. It now remains only to form one of the individual pieces and give it the desired shape. Store the product in the refrigerator.
A few helpful tips that will simplify cooking, as well as make the oil even more useful and tasty:
- What remains after beating is called buttermilk or, as they say in the common people, a butler. At its core, it is nothing but highly skimmed, or rather almost completely fat-free milk. And such a product is tasty and healthy, so you can just drink it. But you can also use buttermilk as a basis for dough, for example, when making pancakes.
- To make the butter tender and sweetish, after whipping and separating the buttermilk, rinse it. And it is desirable to use cold water. And repeat the procedure several times, then you will achieve the best results.
- To whip cream faster, you should cool them a little. But they should not be too cold! The optimum temperature is about 15 degrees. If they are cold, the process of separating the fat part will slow down.
- Whip the cream should be in a fairly volumetric capacity, as they love the space (otherwise the separation of fat will be incomplete). It is desirable that the size is two to three times greater than the amount of the original product.
- If desired, you can improve or slightly change the taste of the oil, using various additives. For example, you can add a little salt, and then you get a product that resembles the taste of the legendary and once loved “Rama”. And to make a delicious dessert chocolate butter, use cocoa powder. Spices will add seasoning or spices, such as ground ginger or cinnamon. In general, experiment to create a true exclusive culinary masterpiece.
- Be prepared for the fact that the cream in the process of whipping will scatter in all directions and inevitably stain the kitchen. But this can be avoided. The first method is not to use a dip mixer or blender, but to close the bowl. If there is no such device, do not despair. Simply tighten the container with food film in several layers, make a small hole in the middle and place a whisk or mixer attachment in it. Then only the film becomes dirty.
- You can use not only the usual cow cream, but goat. They, by the way, are fatter, so you will get more oil at the outlet.
- Determine the amount of cream yourself, based on the desired final volume of the finished oil. Usually, about 700-800 grams of butter is obtained from a liter of rather heavy cream.
- To make the most healthy butter, use cream obtained from a cow in May or in the first midsummer. At this time, cattle eat nutritious grass, and beneficial substances enter the milk.
