Making Homemade Butter in the Weston Manual Kitchen Kit

Making butter from scratch is so much easier than you thought it was — especially if you have a Weston Kitchen Kit. It's like a mini handheld stand mixer. You pour in the cream, start turning the easy-turn rotary handle, and in 5 minutes you have butter. 

Cilantro Lime Compound Butter Recipe

- Ingredients - 

1 cup heavy cream
zest of 1 lime
1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
pinch salt

- Tools - 
Weston Manual Kitchen Kit

Use your Manual Kitchen Kit to zest the lime (mandoline attachment with small grater) and chop the cilantro (chopping blade attachment).

Remove the attachments and insert the beater. Sprinkle in the chili flakes and salt, then pour in the cream.

Secure the lid, then turn the handle to beat, about five minutes, until texture is consistent with butter. At around 2 minutes, you'll have whipped cream. At 3 minutes the cream will separate. And at 5, it will be whipped into butter.

Just about ready

You can simply scrape it into a bowl and refrigerate it until you're ready to use it at this point. You can also mold it by using plastic wrap to squeeze it together and use your hands to roll it into a cylinder or shape it into a ball. 

This technique can be used to make all types of butter, not just Cilantro Lime Butter.

Tip: Try the Cilantro Lime Butter on cornbread (like we did), grilled chicken, fish, shrimp or roasted corn.
