    …..Mmmm. The butter looks great! I’ll have to give it a try, and compare it to the usual Land O Lakes Unsalted I usually gorge on…

    I once made butter by accident, by whipping the cream too long. It was really good.

    I’d add a dash of salt to that butter recipe, or you’re in for a bland surprise!

  4. Damn. I come here to comment on the butter and I see that everybody else seems to want homemade butter.

    I agree with the dash of salt. I was thinking the same thing as I was reading the instructable.
