Bee Bread Butter

Background

When we learned bee bread was chock-full of lactic acid bacteria, we though to use it to inoculate cream to make cultured butter. The result was potent.

Ingredients

1L full-fat, unhomogenised cream

1 chamber of bee bread

Fine salt

Method

Put the cream in an inert container, and add the bee bread. Leave in for 1h, then strain to remove, and cover the cream. Leave the inoculated cream out at room temperature for 24h, then transfer to the refrigerator to culture further—at least a few days. Culturing at room temperature, especially with the potency of the bee bread, can sometimes yield an overly rapid fermentation and off, putrid flavours. When the cream has reached a desired thickness, acidity, and flavour, whip the cream in a chilled, covered bowl until the butterfat and buttermilk separate. Throw and/or wash the butter to remove excess buttermilk, and season with salt as desired.

p dinesh: Here are the ingredients needed on how to make garlic bread with regular bread: 1-2 garlic cloves grated4-5 Slices of regular bread or one baguette breadButter 3-3 ½ table spoonBasil powder - 1 teaspoonSalt to tastePepper powder ½ teaspoonPaprika powder ½ teaspoonA hand full of freshly chopped Coriander leavesAluminum foil Pre-heat the oven first to 350 degree prior to mixing all the ingredients. Get the regular bread and slice it straight up or vertically but do not separate the pieces. You just need to make slits. In a bowl, add the salt, pepper, basil and paprika powder, butter, grated garlic, and coriander leaves and mix it well. This will make a butter mix which you will need to spread on the bread piece as well as inside the slits. After that, get an aluminum foil and cover the bread with it. Pop it in the oven roughly about 8 minutes at 350 F. Carefully remove and transfer it to a plate. The garlic bread is now ready to be served as a snack with hot soup, with coffee, or as a side dish for pasta. If you desire to create crispy and toasted garlic bread, here is how to do it. Cut the regular bread horizontally and follow the same steps above. Bake the bread without covering it with aluminum foil. You can be creative and innovative by adding cheeses such as feta, cheddar, or mozzarella. You can also make use of olive oil instead of butter. To bake the garlic bread perfectly, make sure that you monitor the bread every 5 minutes or as often as you can to keep it from burning. Adding cheese would surely make it taste better but is just an option. Always keep in mind to never put aluminum foil in a microwave
