Ingredients

  • 1 bag of shake (roughly 1/2 pound - 1 pound)
  • Large cooking/stock pot (mine is a 4 gallon)
  • 5 pounds butter or margarine
  • cheesecloth for straining
  • thick elastic bands
  • empty plastic containers with lids (ice-cream pails or large Tupperware work best)
  • ladle or coffee mug
  • rubber gloves or oven mitts
  • It's always best to use the best leaf you can find. The more potent the shake, the more potent the butter.

Directions

  1. Step 1: Put your 5 pounds of butter/margarine into the stock pot.
  2. Step 2: Put in your bag of VERY dry shake (try to sift out any stalks or foreign matter.)
  3. Step 3: Fill the pot with cold water leaving about 4 inches at the top for stirring.
  4. Step 4: Set your stove element to med heat, leaving a slight crack open on the lid for steam to escape. Once the mixture comes to a boil, turn the heat down to low and
  5. simmer for at least 5 hours. (You can do it for longer, but 5 hours is the minimum time to simmer.)
  6. Step 5: Stir with a wooden spoon occasionally.
  7. Step 6: Take it off the element and let it cool for a while. (Note: you only want to cool it as much as you'll need to be able to handle it with gloves, the hotter it is, the easier it
  8. is to squeeze the butter out of the leaf.)
  9. Step 7: Cut yourself some squares of cheesecloth and spread out your plastic containers. Put the cloth pieces over each container and secure it with the elastic bands. (I
  10. usually double up each bit of cheese cloth.)
  11. Step 8: Take a ladle or coffee mug and scoop out some of the green mixture onto the cloth. Keep pouring until you get close (about 6") to the top of the container. Then
  12. take the cheesecloth off and squeeze into the container as hard as you can to get the most butter out of the mix.
  13. Repeat into all containers until all of your green stew is out of the stock pot and squeezed into the containers. *Note: most of the butter is saturated into the leaves and
  14. that's the part you want to ensure gets totally squeezed out of the mixture and into your containers.
  15. Step 9: Put the lids on your filled containers and place them on a level surface in your freezer.
  16. Step 10: After about 5 hours, the butter will solidify and some of the water will turn to ice. Take each container one by one over to the sink, take off the lid, and with one
  17. hand supporting the ice block, turn container upside down and release. Some water will come pouring out, and the ice just needs to be scraped away from the main butter
  18. block. You should be left with a smooth, round slab of light green butter.
  19. Step 11: I store my butter in empty margarine containers in the fridge. If you've got lots, you can put the butter back in the freezer and take it out as needed. Or you can
  20. share it with your friends.
  21. You can use this butter just as you would regular butter in any baking recipe. Simply substitute the butter your recipe calls for with your special butter.
