Making Homemade Butter

You would not believe how easy it is to make homemade butter! There is nothing to it and you get a great big payoff in the end. It’s also nice to be able to tell all your friends that you make your own butter.

All you need is:

  • A food processor
  • 2 cups pasteurized heavy cream
  • ¼ tsp salt (optional)

Measure out your heavy cream and pour it into the food processor. Then add the salt. Close and process for about 10 minutes until you start to see soft balls forming.

Place some cheesecloth into a strainer and dump the butter onto the cheesecloth to drain. Pick up the corners of the cheesecloth to form a bag around the butter and give it a tight squeeze to get that last bit of moisture out.

Place in a butter dish.

Tip: I like to make different butter spreads. You can mix in chopped dill, sun dried tomatoes or if you would like a sweet spread you can mix in strawberry jam.
