- orange peel from 1 orange
- 80 grams dried cranberries
- 5 sprigs rosemary
- 600 grams chilled cream
- chilled water
Place peeled orange rind into Thermomix Bowl. Chop 10 seconds / speed 10. Scrape down sides of bowl and chop for a further 10 seconds / speed 10. Add the cranberries and rosemary and chop 10 seconds / speed 10. Remove mixture and set aside. The mixture should be nice and fine.
Insert butterfly into mixing bowl and add chilled cream. Whip for 1 to 3 minutes / speed 4, until the butter separates from the liquid. You will know when this step is complete, as you will hear a change in the sound, and your Thermomix will start to "rock'n'roll" a little bit.
Pour out the liquid (buttermilk), using the basket as a strainer. Return the solids to the bowl with the chilled water. Mix 3 seconds / speed 4. Pour out the liquids, once again using the basket as a strainer. This step can be repeated multiple times if desired. Clean and dry mixing bowl.
Place butter solids along with cranberry mixture in mixing bowl with butterfly and whip 5 seconds / speed 4.
For a beautiful roast turkey, spread this butter between the skin and meat all over using a spoon. Rub any leftover butter into the outside of the skin. This will not only infuse a beautiful flavour into your turkey, but also make the skin lovely and crisp.
Looks, smells and tastes like Christmas!
This butter would make a lovely gift, packaged up in a jar with instructions on how to baste the turkey.
Can be frozen if required, or stored in an airtight container for approximately 2 weeks. The "cleaner" the butter, the longer it will keep for. The cleaning step (adding chilled water) can be repeated a number of times.
The by product of butter is buttermilk. This can be retained and used in a number of different application. Buttermilk scones are my favourite! Buttermilk is able to be frozen until required.
