Just tried it. It does work, but the whole thing doesn't become butter, only the hindmilk (cream). I used 1oz of milk and got about 1tsp of butter and a whole lot of thin watery milk left over. I put it though cheese cloth to seperate it. However, it tastes really good! Amazing what you can do with your own milk!

Gotta love this recipe, strange yet wonderful. Haven't tried it, but wish I knew about it when I had a freezerful of breastmilk to spare . . . don't know if hubby would've been game enough though. Whatever you were thinking when you discovered it, well, pure genius! Will give it a go next time I have some breastmilk on hand . . . I mean on breast . . .

vigorously shaking the breast milk will damage the proteins and make it lose it's benefit to the baby. but just for a treat to make with surplus milk it is a great idea.

It's too bad I don't have an over abundance of mommy's milk, or I'd have to give this a try. I would have never thought to make butter out of my milk. What an idea.

and to the person who claimed the recipe is "hands down" the weirdest...why on earth is human milk so weird for people?! i mean..it's less weird to drink another animals milk than a humans?

Hands down, the most bizarre recipe on here. I'm not knocking it or saying it's not good. It may well be, don't think I'll ever have the chance to try it but that's,...ok. Very OK. I just have to commend you for throwing this out here.
