If you can believe it, I have never tried making butter with our goat's milk. Yesterday I finally made some.
It was so stinkin' easy, I can't believe I haven't made it before.
Our next oldest daughter had been skimming the cream, and we had a pint of it. I simply poured it into my blender.
I blended for about 4-5 minutes, let it rest and rise to the top.
I rinsed the butter a few times with ice water, drained it off. I then put it in a bowl and folded it until there was no water coming out of it. I then stirred in salt.
It was my high point in the day. Every day I try to plan something to look forward to every day (little or big). The anticipation keeps me fired up in positive energy. What's next? A new cheese with goat's milk maybe. So far, I've made ricotta and cream cheese.
