Tips and Tricks / Re: Butter disaster after freezing cream
« on: February 21, 2011, 03:56:18 am »
Thank you so much.  I found the link very useful!  I think I defrosted my cream too quickly and maybe it wasn't cold enough?  My next attempt (and a much more patient with defrosting the cream overnight in the fridge) was SUCCESFUL!!!  Yay!!
I have learnt not to be impatient!!! (or listen to the impatient child who wants buttermilk for her scones!!)   :D

Tips and Tricks / Butter disaster after freezing cream
« on: February 19, 2011, 07:15:37 am »
I had bought some cream on special and froze it...  Today I thawed it (sat on bench and then at end stood in some warm water to defrost last of it)  It was still cold.  Did all the usual things.  We have been making butter successfully for weeks since our new addition arrived  :-))  Anyway, this was a complete and utter disaster.  It thickened then went runny. I ended up pouring it down the sink.  I have now taken the other 2 creams out of the freezer and will thaw in fridge...  Then try again tomorrow I guess! 
Was my impatience to thaw the cream to blame?  In future shall I make the butter straight away and then freeze it?
Any suggestions out there on storing cream if bought on special?  To make butter first or to freeze cream?
