I just want to know how to know when butter is ready? How many times to be rinsed with cold water, and will this freeze well?

How to Keep Homemade Butter
by: Raschell

Rinsing Homemade Butter: This can be done by placing the butter in a bowl with cold water and kneading the butter. When the water discolors, pour it out and more cold water. When the water is clear after kneading it is done.

Preserving Homemade Butter: I have never froze it because it loses it flavor, which would be a shame. Just make butter for what you need at the time (a cup) and enjoy. You may add spices, salt while mixing it up.

Hi Stacey!

Thanks for contacting me.

If you are using a mixer, you will know the butter is ready when it forms into a ball. The butter will be in a chunk and the remaining liquid is buttermilk.

If you are shaking it in a bottle and you don’t hear the marble when shaking, your getting very close to completion. Again, the butter will form into a ball and remaining liquid is buttermilk which you can use in a recipe or discard.
