I love love love white butter, it is not only lord krishna's favorite one, but mine too..When i was little i used to gulp lots of them, but now i kind of stay away from them. When we were little, amma used to take the cream, malai which forms on top of the milk when she boils them in a small container, she used to do this regularly and after few days when quite a bit of cream is collected, then she used to churn it using a churner and collect the butter. She makes ghee using that butter.
But i am not that patient to collect the cream whenever i boil milk, so i take the instant and short route. I buy few packets of fresh cream and make butter using those..I made this for krishna jayanthy and offered lord krishna..
This homemade butter can be used to make homemade ghee and in making cakes and stuffs like that. But i wont suggest this to make frosting, because this has water content in them which is not good when you make frosting..So try this and let me know how it turns out..
