'Real' Butter. I Capture the Castle. (The Video)

I shouldn't think even millionaires could eat anything nicer than new bread and real butter and honey for tea.

I Capture the Castle, Dodie Smith


Since discovering how easy it is to make my own butter, it has become one of my favourite kitchen pastimes. It's consistent, soothing, and leaves me with a couple of days of proper joy, as I spread the fruits of my labour over everything in sight.

Last week, my friend Tom and I made this video, to show you just how simple it is to do yourself. It's the first in a little series we're planning to do, so we'd love to know what you think.

You can also find the recipe here, and a suggestion of what to do with the buttermilk that's leftover here.

Hope you enjoy!
