  • 1 1/2 tbsp.s YIAH Blend of Choice

Directions

1. Attach mixing tool firmly to the top of the stirring blade in the jug. Poor the cream into the jug.

3. Strain off the buttermilk by pouring the white liquid from the jug through the cooking basket and into a separate jug. To get all the buttermilk out, press the butter firmly against the side of the jug with a wooden spoon
4. Take the mixing tool out of the bowl. Add about 500ml ice cold water. Mix on Speed 4 for 8 seconds

6. Add another 500ml water, mix on Speed 4 for 8 seconds then strain off the water again. The water should be running clear at the end of this process
7. Weigh your butter. You want a ratio of 2 parts butter:1 part oil:1 part water. Add salt and YIAH Blend of choice. Click the mixing tool on to the top of the blade again
8. Mix on Speed 4 for 40 seconds or until it looks smooth and creamy
