Does your butter have herbs in it? Garlic? Little pieces of sausage? It could. Well, maybe you don’t really want the last one, but customizable butter doesn’t have to be far away.
The Paderno World Cuisine Fresh Butter Maker (with instructions) is a butter churn for home kitchen use. Consisting of a hand crank and a jar, the kitchen tool takes cream from liquid to butter in minutes (along with some elbow grease).
Of course, it doesn’t take one of these things to make flavored or seasoned compound butter, since there is still the matter of shaping it after the whey has been tipped off. But as long as you’re playing with butter, might as well make it fresh. Yum!
