I was at an arts and crafts festival this weekend at our local community center and while I was wandering through the ‘second hand’ area I ran across a bread machine. Now I always stop to look at bread machines, even though I already have one, because I like to see how they differ from one another. I noticed that this one had a dessert setting. Without looking at any other settings I open it up to see if there was a manual. There was…and a cookbook. Nice. While flipping though the cookbook I found a butter setting. Butter… In a bread machine… A machine that heats up… That sounds impossible. It was only $10 and had only been used like once. It was in immaculate shape, so I decided to get it as it would be a fun thing to try.
The 100% of the money from these sales go to funding and running the center so even if it was a dud, I have supported the center.
I got home, wiped it down, poured in a cup of heavy whipping cream, turned it on and walked away. Well dang, after 30 minutes I was pouring off buttermilk to use in my next batch of bread baking and scrapping out butter.
Guess what’s going to be gifts this year? Merry Christmas indeed.
