    KitchenAid Mixer....primal suggestions anyone?

    Shop Now
    I just got a KitchenAid mixer for mother's day-I've wanted one for years and apparently hubby has been slowly saving to get one with all the bells and whistles. It is so flipping cool!!!

    But....

    What can I make that's primal? I so want to try it out but I've gotten rid of all the flours and sugars and whatnot and it doesn't have a sausage grinder attachment thing (about the only thing it didn't come with, lol).

    What a good Hubby you have!

    I make butter with my kitchen aid all the time.

    I use the grater attachments for veggies and the grinder for organ meats.

    Meeeeat grindeeeer!

    We just registered for one for our wedding. I hope we get it!

    I was thinking about making a batch of primal chocolate chip cookies...I think you could use it for that to get the butter nice and whipped!

    And yeah, you can make butter with the whisk attachment. I did that by accident once with a batch of maple whipped cream I was making for a (pre-primal) breakfast that included some quickbreads. Just left the darn stuff go too long, and my stiff peaks turned into whipped butter! I looked at it, decided no one would know the difference, and served it as maple butter.

    Also, back in the day, I used to use it to make lye-based soap!

    The last time mine came out was for making cheesecake (with a nut flour crust). I just got a meat grinding & sausage stuffing attachment, though, and I'm really looking forward to trying it out. I'm a bit squeamish about offal so I figure this could be a good way to fit it into my diet.

    Also, I 2nd the butter. The byproduct of real buttermilk is awesome, too. You can make lovely soup with it. Leeks + buttermilk = NOM.

    Coconut Crack Creamer (the coconut milk, egg concoction that is great in coffee)
    Meringue
    Mayo (although I have to make a large batch usually to use the whisk on my kitchen aid)
    Frittata, those eggs need to be whipped somehow

    If you get the grinder you can make primal pet food with bones...I'm so jealous!

    If it's a stand mixer, you can get an ice cream maker attachment and make primal frozen treats.

    Butter! I hadn't thought of that!! I am definitely getting the grinder attachment, we can't wait to make sausage.

    Thanks everyone!! I had my head stuck in cookie/bread land, must have been the recipe pamphlet they send in the box.
