Slow and simple

It’s truly a luxury to make everything from scratch, usually I buy pre-made butter and jam, but not in this instance. Can’t compare fresh butter and jam to store bought ones. The one thing I can’t control is scoring a baguette from Balthazar when it just popped out of the oven- Though I enjoy making things from scratch from time to time, I know my limit and will not make a baguette from scratch because it will not taste good, bread making is not for amateurs. This time I was a little lucky and the baguette was still warm but it wasn’t scorching hot.

Fresh Butter Maker. With this, making fresh butter isn’t hard, cream turns into butter after about 5-7 minutes of spinning.

To prep the fresh strawberry jam, chop them into eighths and get some fresh lemon juice, lemon zest, and sugar. That’s it!

Butter is almost done but not quite. Make sure to season it with some salt.

Add some freshly grated truffle into the butter if you have it.
