Today I made some butter....

Last night I watched Superscrimpers on TV. It’s up to Series 2 Episode 3, and I hadn’t come across it before, so I’m busy watching the ones I missed online.

But back to last night’s episode. Leo made some butter out of cream that was almost at its use-by date. I had some cream left from a dinner that I’d cooked for friends a week ago, and had been looking for a way to use it up. I’m not a big cream fan, so hadn’t found a use for it yet, and was reaching the point where I would have to get rid of it somehow.

I didn’t like the idea of throwing the whole pot away in my rubbish bin any more than I liked the idea of pouring it down the drain. Just as I was playing around with the thought of turning it into ice cream, I saw Leo making butter.

My home-made butter

All I needed was an empty jam jar and about 10 minutes’ worth of elbow grease and I had a pretty respectable pat of butter to put on my bread.

Best of all, I know what went into it.
