There’s a lot of controversy surrounding butter. Here’s what I have to say about it: I love it, and it makes things taste good; it’s not particularly nutritious–in fact, excess intake can negatively impact heart health. So what’s a person to do?
Eat it. Enjoy it. Don’t go overboard. Only purchase really good butter, or make it yourself.
You can make butter from heavy cream by shaking it vigorously in an air-tight container, which is tedious but trains your bis, tris, delts and pecs (I guess). Otherwise, drag out your stand mixer or food processor to do the trick.
