A do-it-yourself craze appears to be the next wave in the local food movement. Homemade butter, mozzarella, ricotta, fermented foods and even tofu are some of the DIY projects I recommend for newbies. Certain foods, like homemade butter, don’t even require cooking or special ingredients, just measuring, reading instructions, and a little time.
If you’re a collector, you could easily put together one of these kits on your own. But if you’re short on time, Williams-Sonoma is selling this DIY butter making kit, along with fun accessories like butter molds, in their online catalog. Personalize it by including a quart of your favorite local cream.
