Now you’ve discovered a2 Milk® that’s naturally free from the A1 protein, there are lots of delicious recipe opportunities to enjoy. But you can’t escape the fact that a pat or two of butter makes those crumbly cookies, moist cupcake frostings or silky sauces so much better. To help everyone enjoy those little luxuries, we’ve asked Andrea from The Petite Cook to create a homemade butter tutorial. It’s easy (it only takes 10 minutes), fun, tastes so much better than store-bought butter and it contains only the A2 protein. You don’t even need special equipment to make butter, you could just put the ingredients in a jar and shake, shake, shake it until you end up with butter. However, this tutorial uses a food processor to make things a little easier.
Preparation: 10 mins
Cooking time: N/A
Servings: 2 cups
Place all ingredients in a blender or food processor. Mix until combined, about 1 minute.
Transfer the butter mixture into a silicone or plastic mold and place in the fridge for half an hour or in the freezer for 5 minutes.
Store in the fridge well covered, for up to 4 weeks. You could even make double the amount and freeze into portions for whenever you need it.
If you want to get really adventurous, you could also add some extra flavor by mixing in minced garlic or some fresh aromatic herbs.
