      Please note that the TM5 mixing bowl has a larger capacity than the TM31 (capacity of 2.2 liters instead of 2.0 liters for TM 31). Recipes for the Thermomix TM5 may not be cooked with a Thermomix TM31 for safety reasons without adjusting the quantities. Risk of scalding by spraying of hot liquids: Do not exceed the maximum filling quantity and observe the filling level markings of the mixing bowl!

Recipe's preparation

  1. 1. Insert butterfly whisk. Place pure cream into mixing bowl and beat for 1-4 min/speed 4. If the solids and liquid have not completely separated whisk for a further 30-60 seconds. Remove the butterfly whisk, carefully scrape clean. Scrape down the inside of the bowl and beat for 5-10 seconds. The butter and buttermilk (milky liquid should have separated).

    2. Using the simmering basket over a bowl, strain the liquid buttermilk in to a bowl. Using a spatula to squeeze the solids against the side of the bowl, more buttermilk will be released, pour into bowl with first lot of buttermilk. The buttermilk may be frozen for later use.

    3. Pour chilled water into mixing bowl followed by butter solids, then mix 15 sec/speed 4. Using the simmering basket again to strain off the watery liquid after squeezing sides of bowl with spatula, dispose of this watery liquid unless wanted. This leaves only the butter.

    4. Return butter to TM bowl then add 7grams of Himalayan Salt and 20grams Olive Oil and mix 20-25 secs/speed 4. There may be a small amount of watery solution in the bowl so carefully drain it.

    5. Using a metal spoon take a scoop of butter and press firmly into your container. This will help pack the butter and release any remaining water that can be discarded as you progress.

Butter will keep in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.

The butter freezes well in either a container or rolled as logs .

Cream close to the expiry date will separate faster than fresher.

Watch for reduced priced Pure Cream that is about to expire.

The saved buttermilk can be frozen in ice cube trays and later sealed in bags allowing for portion sizes to be used for cooking purposes.
