Making Butter

There are some things that I just want to try doing myself.  No, it's not exactly cheaper or quicker, but sometimes I just like knowing I can do it, I can make something.  So butter is one of those things.  I always thought people who made their own butter were nuts, but oh how I love and dislike you Pinterest.
I found this site, that made it look soo easy.  Well, it was!

You simply start with a carton of whipping cream

Pour it in the wonderful Kitchen Aid, and whip on high

Keep whipping til it starts to seperate and get chunky

Then strain it

And mush out all the extra milk

And then enjoy it on a piece of toast, or anything else you like. 
So there you have it - super easy, only about 15 minutes or so, and butter is made and ready to use.  Pretty good.  I didn't add any salt to it, next time I might.
