Make Your Own Butter Kit
Although easier and probably cheaper to buy off the supermarket shelf, there is a certain sense of accomplishment that comes from making your own butter. Truth be told, a kit is actually unnecessary. A jar large enough to hold a decent about of double cream and some arm strength vigorously shaking the jar, would suffice. However, the size, shape and design of this jar enables a decent amount of butter to be made relatively quickly and easily via a hand crank. Perfect for the kitchen enthusiast who would love to experiment with making flavoured and herb butters.
