Butter (homemade butter recipe)

Updated: Jul 13

Prep time: 20 minutes


Ingredients:

-3 cups heavy cream (high fat content)

-1 tsp salt (optional)

-5 tbsp ice water


Directions:

If you do not have a food processor:

  1. Place about 1 pint of cream in a clean mason jar, add salt to taste (optional) and shake for about 15-20 minutes until the cream has separated into buttermilk and butter fat.

  2. Drain all of the buttermilk into a glass and either discard or save it for use in other recipes.

  3. Once the fat is alone in the jar, add a bit of cold water and shake the jar. Discard the water and repeat this process until the water is clear. If you do not clean out any of the buttermilk properly, the butter will spoil sooner.

If using a food processor:

  1. Place about 1 pint of cream and some salt (to taste) in a food processor or kitchen aid mixer fitted to a whisk attachment.

  2. Turn the food processor or mixer on and mix until the cream has separated into 2 things-buttermilk and butter fat.

  3. Drain all of the buttermilk out into a glass and either discard or save it for use in other recipes.

  4. Once the fat is alone in the food processor or the mixer, add a bit of the ice water and turn the appliance on low speed. Watch out for spattering. Discard the water and repeat this process until the water is clear.
