I met Amy from Crooked Face Creamery at The Kneading Conference this past summer. Actually, first I met Amy’s amazing fresh ricotta at the social hour. I tasted it and was admiring how delicious it was and realized the fabulous cheese maker was right there (with her adorable baby!!). Her cheese has been winning national cheese contests and is in high demand but she’s awesome and is able to save me a little so I can ‘spread’ the love in our area. When I pick up cheese I’ve also been picking up some raw milk. With that gallon of raw milk, I’ve been separating the cream and making butter! It is pretty easy and fun – and you get the best butter in the world. If you don’t have a local farm that has fresh raw milk or cream available, you can use cream from the store. I go through WAYYYY more butter than what a gallon can make, but it’s a great treat and especially delicious toasted homemade bread in the morning!
