I would like to make some breastmilk butter and was wondering a couple things if anyone can help<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
1) How much milk is needed to make X amount of butter? Say does 3 oz of milk only make 1 tablespoon of butter?<br><br>
2)How long will you have to shake it? I was wondering if I could put it in a bottle then wrap it then put it in a paint can and get a hardware store to put it in the paint mixer thingy which would shake the tar out of it<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
3)How long goes it last before it spoils?<br><br>
4) Can you use the butter in baking?

Well, I don't know specifically for BM, because I sure can't pump that much, but my friend and I made butter last week from raw cream from cow's milk. We shook out about 4 quarts of milk, and got not even a cup of butter. Depends on how creamy the milk is, and what temperature. Gotta let it warm to close to room temp, then it takes half an hour and up for each jar we did. And you do know you gotta separate the cream from the milk first and only shake the cream, right? I can't imagine having that much BM, but again, the pump and I aren't friends!

I am pretty sure that bm has a higher fat content than cow's milk, especially hind milk. But other than that, I have no idea.

When I make butter from cow's milk cream, I don't shake it. I use a hand mixer, like to make whipped cream. Then, I just keep going past the whipped cream stage until it becomes butter. If you have a stand mixer, that would be even easier.

Because my kids are allergic to cows milk and the artifical stuff it full of garbage I don't want my kids eating. I also need to add calories to my 11 mo olds diet.

Wow. That is an AWESOME idea!<br><br>
I would think this would be a great way of adding calories and you know there's nothing bad in it.<br><br>
Will you let us know how it goes?
