Default Karen's book/making own butter

Hi all! The postman delivered "The Low-Carb Gourmet" today and am sooo looking forward to trying some of the delicious-sounding recipes. I also really appreciate the additional metric measurements.

Karen mentions making your own butter to see what fresh butter really tastes like. Last time I did this was 43 years ago in kindergarten, but it will be much easier now with a stick-mixer (or whatever they are called in English). Anyway, my question is, how long does freshly made butter keep in the fridge?

Thanks, Roemary

I've dug around and there doesn't seem to be a 'standard' keeping time for unsalted fresh butter. You can and should refrigerate it, I'd recommend keeping in the fridge only the amount you can use/consume in a week, and freeze the rest...

My grandmother churned her own butter for as long as I knew her. I even tried to help churn it one time. I guess it's a matter of taste, but the fresh stuff tasted pure-D awful to me! I couldn't even stand to SMELL it, much less eat it. LOL But my parents said they liked it and they didn't think it tasted funny at all. So like I said, I guess it's just a matter of personal taste.

I looove fresh butter and buy it from a farm up the street. Sooo yummy. I dont put it on everything though because it does have a strong odor/taste and I dont want to turn other people off by cooking their meals with it. lol.

I've made my own fresh in the food processor (super easy). I recall reading (but not sure where) a week to 10 days.
