Lemon and Thyme Homemade Butter - How to Make

Okay yes I know homemade butter has been done a million times before now by other people, but I'm quite pleased with myself having finally got round to making butter all by myself......oh and with a little help from my ThermoCook of course.



So, Paul (the husband) came home from work and as soon as he walked through the door........
Me - 'Paule, Paule, I've made BUTTER'!!
Paul - But WHY?

It turns out he was actually impressed - just shocked since he thought it was a long job and wondered why I'd bothered with such a thing!
 
Anyway, read on and I'll tell you how much buttermilk you actually get from 300ml of double cream.  Yes buttermilk, so this really is two recipes in one.

You don't have to have a ThermoCook in order to make butter but it really is one excellent piece of kitchen equipment that I use almost daily for something or other.

Vegetarian Stew with Peppers and Cannellini Beans - ThermoCook Recipe

An easy to make, vibrant vegetable stew packed full of flavour.  The addition of cannellini beans makes this a filling meal especially if served fresh crusty bread for dipping and mopping.   Of course you don't have to own a ThermoCook to make this recipe, but it does make it extra simple to make and really does cook stews perfectly.




All stews taste even better if reheated to following day making this the perfect quick mid week meal or to take to work for a tasty lunch; just heat it up in a microwave.
Of course the ThermoCook can chop everything but since we want chunks of vegetables rather than finely chopped for this recipe it's better to cut them by hand.

Optimum ThermoCook - Mini Review

Thanks to ThermoCook it's beginning to look like I'm redundant in my own kitchen!  Let me tell you about this truly amazing piece of kit; introducing the Optimum ThermoCook Professional Cooking Assistant!  When I was asked if I'd like a ThermoCook all of my own I almost fell off the chair; I mean this is  seriously an excellent state of the art piece of kitchen equipment.  It's not only stylish but it's smaller than I imagined it to be, which is great since our kitchen is really tiny.

Oh yes, the ThermoCook is a cooking lovers dream come true.  Of course it's not that I or anyone else can't cook, but the ThermoCook makes everything so much easier. 





There's so much I have to tell you but it would mean this post would go on forever, so I intend to write a series of posts covering the many different tasks the ThermoCook can do.
