Here’s what you need –

 

Heavy cream (I used a pint)

Salt

Food processor or blender (I used a food processor)

 

 

 

 

Pour the heavy cream into your food processor or blender, put the lid on and turn it on.

After about 2 minutes, you will have whipped cream –

As it thickens, it will look like ricotta cheese (after about 5 minutes).  At this point, if you would like, add a little salt.

About 7-8 minutes in, it begins to separate and you will have butter milk appearing.  When it looks like this, it’s finished!

In order to drain off the butter milk, I put a strainer over a bowl and drain.

After it’s drained for a few minutes, put butter into a container.

You’ll notice that I had about 3/4 cups of butter milk when all was said and done.  DON’T toss this out! Seriously — it’s great to use as a liquid in muffins, bread, biscuits, corn bread, etc.  Butter milk adds an amazing “zing” of flavor so don’t waste it!

See – making butter is just that easy!!! You family and friends will totally be impressed.

Now I think I need to make some bread to put this on!  Enjoy!!!

Blessings,

Heidi
