This is Why I Love my Food Processor

 The first food processor, the Starmix, was introduced in 1946 and looked more like a blender rather than its modern counterparts. In the 70 years since, food processors have become more sophisticated and today they can be used for a variety of purposes, making them one of the most useful appliances in the kitchen.
 
1. Instantly Churn Cream into Butter


1. Pour 2 Cups of heavy cream into your food processor and run it for about 30 seconds.

2. If you stop now, you have some lovely whipped cream.

3. Run the food processor for about 3-4 minutes. Stop and you’ll discover 2 ingredients – butter and buttermilk.

4. Use a sieve to remove all the buttermilk from the butter.

5. Put the butter back in the food processor and add ¼ cup cold water and process it for 10 seconds.

6. Pour out the water and repeat twice more until there’s no more whey.

7. Sieve out any remaining liquid (you can now add spices and herbs if you'd like).
