Dear Barbara: My whole life I have heard people say, “Don’t whip the cream for too long or it will turn into butter!” Would it really turn into butter or would it just be a really stiff whipped cream with a slightly greasy taste? That I have done, but I wouldn’t call it butter. — Hannah from Elk Grove
Dear Hannah: Yes, you can make your own butter. It doesn’t have a very long shelf life, but the taste is very light and fresh.
