This is the recipe I use to make my butter. It is simple and works good for many recipes. It also doesn’t stink up your house as much as making it on the stove.
- 1lb. Real butter
- About an ounce of sugar leaf trimmings ( may include some smaller buds)
- 1/4 cup of water (to keep butter from burning)
You will need a crock pot as well
Directions: Set crock pot to lowest setting. Melt the butter almost completely. Add the trimmings and water and stir. Let simmer overnight, stirring often. Strain through cheesecloth and squeeze as much liquid out as you can. Let cool and refrigerate. Drain off excess water. Use as you would butter. Be careful though as this can be potent.
