    Pr. Very nice commentary, who knew how to do this – not me! And, my Favorite dessert is cheesecake so the homemade sour cream would be delicious instead of commercial (kind). Actually, a simple process- butter- unless it is your talent that makes it so! Doamne Ajuta! Glory to Jesus Christ!

    Thank you again. Amazing recipe ! I make farmers cheese. I use a fine mesh strainer, but can a cheese cloth be used for your butter ? My hands don’t work as well as yours lol.

      Sophie, I am not quite sure if the cheese cloth will work well. Would like to make farmer’s cheese myself one day. Can you share a recipe?

    I very much enjoy all your videos. I am nearly 90 years old, but I remember when I was a child, cream was left sitting out at room temperature to sour so it could be made into butter. Also soured milk was used in making cottage cheese. The flavor of this butter and cottage cheese was so much better than what can be bought at the stores now.
    I shall certainly be attempting to make some butter with the soured cream. Thank you for your beautiful videos.
