How to make homemade butter (recipe!)

Homemade butter

This weekend we purchased a KitchenAid Professional 5 mixer. I have wanted one of these mixers for years, but they're expensive and I didn’t want to spend the money. As it turns out, we purchased this used on Craigslist for $130 (which excites me enough to add it to this post.) It was originally listed for $200 (and retails for over $400,) and I'm very proud to have negotiated (with some assistance) to the final price.

After we got the mixer and brought it home, we felt like we needed to immediately start using it due to the excitement. However, we needed to do some shopping and didn't have a lot of time right then. I remembered that we had some heavy cream in the refrigerator that Andru purchased for our coffee. We normally follow a Paleo diet and this cream, from grass fed cows, is an acceptable part of the program. That said, this month I'm following the Whole30 program, and that doesn't allow any dairy except butter from grass fed cows. I knew butter that butter is made by churning cream, but I thought for sure there was more to it than that.

Cyclone cocktail shaker swirls your drinks to perfection

Posted by Sparky Categories: Household, Misc. Tech,

Cocktail Cyclone

Similar to the Automatic Martini Shaker we recently wrote about the Cyclone Cocktail Shaker promises to provide some flashy automation for the mixing of your favorite drink. The Cyclone Cocktail Shaker creates a maelstrom of ingredients as it blends your drink of choice in it’s clear mixing container. Mixing up to 16-ounces at a time this acrylic and stainless steel device combines form and function into a single sleek package. At the $15 price point the motor can’t possibly be up for properly blending with ice so liquors and mixers should be pre-chilled, but that aside this looks to be a great conversation piece for any geeks wet bar.
