Brad Makes Cultured Butter | It's Alive | Bon Appetit
is this whole process to make better tasting butter? because i've made butter with just straight 35% heavy wipping cream straight out of the fridge? Add salt right after you separate the butter milk and it tasted like store bought salted butter.
I actually didn't know there was uncultured butter before. Culturing with lactobacillus before churning acts as a preservative here. Guess that's why most American butter tastes "off" to a European. With sort of a rancid aroma.
Black market cream, baby! Hahaha. I used to know someone who had goats and I had access to full fat cream whenever I wanted. She used to make butter, whipping cream, coffee creamer, cheese, soap, etc. I never got sick from consuming or using any unpasteurized milk she had. Her milk never had to be bleached to hide puss or blood because it was one goat producing a low quantity of milk for personal use. The goat was basically part of the family and treated as such. Pampered cute little thing with delicious milk. It’s sad how much crap food people consume and how much the government feels like the need to put their noses into what we consume. I understand the risks of consuming unpasteurized raw milk product, but I also understand the abuse most animals go through in large production dairy farms and how poor the quality of milk is coming from some of those places. Gross.
Watching Brad making food reminds me of Bill Nye The Science Guy during his shows.
Why you may be asking?
Look at all of these similarities:
1: The editing
2: The sounds effects
3: The way he acts
4: How flipping funny he is.
5: The little speech bubbles and just the cartoonish vibe
6: All of his little helpers that show up to “help” him with his baking
7: And of course, all of his useful knowledge.
