After watching a recent episode of MythBusters, I am inspired to make my own butter! Yes, Google is my friend and I will ask his opinion later but I’d like to ask my real, flesh and blood friends for their input and experience.

Thanks to Nourishing Traditions, we eat a little bit of butter. Okay, we probably eat a little too much of it but it’s better than margarine so it’s not all bad. Right? Well, that’s my story and I’m sticking to it. Aside from the fact that I just want to try it and see if it is fun, I have a sneaking suspicion that it might end up being cheaper than store-bought butter. What do you think?

Have you made your butter in a processing machine or did you shake it by hand? Do you use cream or milk? Any other tips before I attempt it?
