Butter Recipes .............................................................
In honor of National Dairy Month this page is dedicated to Butter.

Once butter is softened, spices, herbs, or other flavoring agents can be mixed into it, producing what is called a compound butter or composite butter (sometimes also called composed butter). Compound butters can be used as spreads, or cooled, sliced, and placed onto hot food to melt into a sauce. Sweetened compound butters can be served with desserts; such hard sauces are often flavored with spirits.

Melted butter plays an important role in the preparation of sauces, most obviously in French cuisine. Beurre noisette (hazel butter) and Beurre noir (black butter) are sauces of melted butter cooked until the milk solids and sugars have turned golden or dark brown; they are often finished with an addition of vinegar or lemon juice. Hollandaise and béarnaise sauces are emulsions of egg yolk and melted butter; they are in essence mayonnaises made with butter instead of oil. Hollandaise and béarnaise sauces are stabilized with the powerful emulsifiers in the egg yolks, but butter itself contains enough emulsifiers—mostly remnants of the fat globule membranes—to form a stable emulsion on its own. Beurre blanc (white butter) is made by whisking butter into reduced vinegar or wine, forming an emulsion with the texture of thick cream. Beurre monté (prepared butter) is melted but still emulsified butter; it lends its name to the practice of "mounting" a sauce with butter: whisking cold butter into any water-based sauce at the end of cooking, giving the sauce a thicker body and a glossy shine—as well as a buttery taste.

Fun Butter
Do ya wanna do something fun with the family? Do ya want to teach the kids how to make real HOMEMADE UDDER BUTTER? Well its real easy and I'm just the cow to teach you how. Why the adults even have fun with this one! 

If you don't have a cow,Go get yourself  1 pint heavy cream from the store. Making your own butter is a great way to discover the magic of milk and introduce your children to how dairy products are produced. It is also a great conversation piece at your next dinner party too.  Moooo!

All Hillybillies and country people know how to do this cause the've been doin' it for years. Why its just the same as churning butter.
Get your jar ready prior to the arrival of your guests and then let them do the work. You will be amazed at how many people don't know how butter is made. 
All you need is a clean, large plastic jar with a lid and heavy cream from the store. Fill the plastic jar half way with heavy cream and screw the lid on tight. If the kids are helping it is a good idea to tape the lid to the jar so they can not open it. Now shake the daylights out of the heavy cream. At first the cream will slosh around like any other liquid. In a short while the cream will thicken into whipped cream. Keep shaking and very soon the fat in the cream will separate from the water and you will suddenly have butter and buttermilk. 
Open the jar and pour off the buttermilk. Close the jar and continue shaking for about 2 more minutes. This will remove more moisture from the butter. Open the jar and pour off the additional buttermilk. Scoop out the butter and chill. The new butter can also be placed into a small decorative mold or individual serving cups prior to chilling. 
Your butter can be sweet (above method) or salted by adding a pinch of cheese salt prior to shaking. You can also flavor your butter with the addition of a pinch of garlic or onion powder, your favorite herbs, or even sugar and ground cinnamon. 

And....oh well....if you don't like doin' it this way then you can tie a bucket on the side of the wildest donky that you've got...then let him jump and kick away until its all done.
