Making butter doesn't really require a kit. i fyou have any old peanut butter jar or anything of the like, just put the cream (and other ingredients, should you choose to use them), in it and shake until lumpy. that's it. no need to buy any specialized kit or anything.

On another note, you can save the excess liquid (also known as buttermilk) that results from making butter and use that for cooking with as well. you can make several things like buttermilk pancakes or ranch dressing.

You can also use a food processor or stand mixer(like Kitchenaid) to make butter, much easier than a jar.

Use the butter milk for the things you suggested as well as cakes, my MIL uses buttermilk for a chocolate cake she makes, it's texture and flavor are awesome.

This is SOOO Third Grade. Did this in my third grade class for a Thanksgiving celebration. My teacher took an empty jar, poured a pint of heavy cream in it, a pinch of salt, and passed it around to everyone in class for a shake. It was passed around to everyone and by the time it got to the last person, it was butter. (Circa early 1960s)

I for one like the non-wine Woots because I live in Pennsylvania (with its archaic alcohol laws) so it's not even worth it to me looking at the actual wine Woots.

Honestly, I often wonder how this site survives given the number of places they CAN'T ship to.

In first grade we made butter. There was a bowl of cream with an egg beater in it and each kid got to spin the egg beater until the cream became butter. So I don't get what this kit is for?

I'm exactly the opposite. Love when it's not wine. Because I live in *gasp* New Jersey. Counting the days though!

This, however, still seems like a waste.

I would normally agree but it's still requirung me to go to the supermarket for heavy cream, no? It's a good educational toy, I'll give you that but I don't know if wine.woot is a good dorum for this intro. I guess we'll see ...

Goat milk doesn't separate like cow milk.. unless you're willing to skim minute amounts of fat off several day old milk in your fridge, or willing to invest in a cream separator, it might not be worth the effort..

that being said... Sure, if you can acquire the cream and agitate it enough, I don't see why it wouldn't work. (You can churn whole milk.. it just takes a hell of a lot of time, and you get very little return for your investment in milk.)

I'm quite happy to see non-wine products on this site since woot won't ship to my state.

Being able to support Woot and its' employees makes me happy :-)

Yes, there are other ways to make butter, but I purchased to remind myself that we can do it if we want to, otherwise, Land o' Lakes....

I used to make my own butter in the dryer. Yes, the dryer.

Just need an empty and cleaned plastic peanut butter jar, a padded oven mitt, and some cream.

Fill the jar about halfway with the cream, put it in the mitt, close it up with safety pins (oh, yeah, you'll need safety pins too).

Put it in the dryer--set the dryer to just toss the contents for about 20 minutes--no heat!

Take it out, open the jar, pour off the whey. Re-seal the jar and the mitt and throw it back in the dryer for another 20 minutes.]

Voila! You'll have really good butter!

I make butter with my Kitchenaid mixer. Pour whipping cream in a bowl, put in a little salt, and turn on high. When it starts to separate, lower the speed. When you get a nice ball, take it out and squeeze it in some cheese cloth. Now you have butter and you didn't wear yourself out shaking a hokey jar.

Maybe it is just me but $14 + the cost of cream to be able to make 6.5 ounces of butter? I know I can go to my local grocery and pay $6 for a pound of a good quality butter, I don't know just seems to be an outrageous price to me. Then one of the other posters said Amazon sells a 12 pack of this for like $17 but is out of stock right now, imagine that isn't this site run by Amazon????

I had to log in just to say anyone who needs a kit to make butter better only have safety scissor in their house and no sharp corners on furniture.

You want to make butter? Do this - get a pint of whole cream, dump it in a blender. Add a pinch of salt. Turn the blender on. Watch it. After a few minutes the butter and milk will separate. Pour off the milk (it's buttermilk! great for baking!). press the butter together with your hands under running water.

If you want flavors add those with the salt.

IT REALLY IS THAT FREAKING EASY.

amen to that. Although some of the toffees and chocolates woot has offered have not been bad. The Brandini toffee turned out to be really good. But more wine!

First you need cream, the stuff in the stupor market is filled with preservatives just because the geeks at the FDA are on a power trip. So you will need to make an Amish connection or a connection with someone who has an Amish connection. Once you have made a connection with "Mr. Stoltzfus" or someone who knows "Mr. Stoltzfus" ...

RE: Goat's milk. It depends on the type of goat you have. Some produce a very high butterfat milk. I used to raise Nigerian Dwarf goats and some produced milk that was more like cream on top Jersey cow's milk. After 24 hrs in the fridge you could scoop the cream right off the top and it made fantastic butter!

This is a silly product, but it inspired me to make butter today. I had a small container of heavy cream I bought for a recipe that was just going to sit there until it spoiled, so I threw it in the kitchenaid, turned it into butter, and had it on toast with jam. Not a bad project, but, yes, a bad woot.

The nicest thing about homemade butter is that it's always smooth and creamy so it spreads easily on bread or toast, even straight from the fridge. No more shredding your bread trying to spread butter on it for making grilled cheese sandwiches!
