The fishcakes I made last night were a big hit with me and Hubby but not with the girls. Both thought they were too lemony and daughter No2, who has an aversion to veg noticed 'green' bits in the fishcakes and demanded to know what they were. Tiny capers I said to which daughter replied, Don't like them, and proceeded to try and pick them out of the fishcakes. Ah well, you can't please them all. So I have a fishcake for my lunch now as daughter only picked at one and left the other. I wanted to make a fishcake with more fish than potato so added a whole packet of frozen fish.
I bought a 300ml tub of double cream in Tesco to have a go at making my own butter. I wanted to see if it was cheaper to make my own rather than buy. The tub of cream cost £1.08 in Tesco. I ment to buy it in Aldi because I know it's cheaper there but forgot. I have discovered it costs more to make my own butter as I only yielded 162g of butter for my £1.08.
It's very simple to make. Pour double cream into a bowl with a good pinch of salt (if you like salted butter)
Whisk and whisk until the over whipped cream starts to turn yellow and release its butter milk.
