(1) Zesty Butter was made of Raw Honey and orange Zest

(4) Pistachio Butter was made of raw Honey, Ground pistachios, and cardamom
(5) Lycii Berry Butter was made of Honey and Lycii Berries chopped
(6) Mango Butter was made of Pomegrante Honey, strawberry juice, mango, cinnamon, ginger.
(7) Lavender Butter was made of Honey and Lavender flowers.

(8) Oat Butter was made of Honey, Rolled oats, cinnamon, and coconut.
  





:::: Here's How to Make Butter:::
you will need:
(1) Heavy Whipping Cream and a Container with a tight lid... 



(2) Pour heavy whipping cream in the container (half full).


(3) Shake it... it will sound like a heavy milk while shaking.

(4) After a little while there will be no sound, if you open the lid and it looks like #4... (you have made whip cream like cool whip.)

(5) Keep shaking it will begin to separate and it will look like a less curdy cottage cheese like #5.

(6) Just continue shaking... you will eventually hear lots of liquid going on, when you hear this... the liquids have separated from the solids and you have successfully made butter! like #6.

(7) Remove from liquid and wrap it up... (refrigerate, because it's nice and soft...unless you are going to eat it right then.)

*** You may add Honey, but if you do.. only add a little or the honey will keep it sort of in a liquid state or like #5.
**** HINT*** the bigger the container, the longer it will take to become a solid...so lots of shaking will have to happen. However, I think you can do this process with a mixer as well..
