In this post I’m sharing How to Make Homemade Butter.

Homemade butter is really fresh, creamy, and delicious. Best of all, it’s so easy to make. Heavy cream and a food processor and a touch of salt and magic happens.

There is truly something magical about a fresh batch of soft and creamy homemade butter. The butter is so delicious spread over all a fresh homemade biscuit or toasted bread.

To make 1 cup of butter here’s what you’ll need:

2 Cups of Heavy Cream
1/4 Teaspoon of Salt (optional)
Food Processor

Add the cream to your food processor and process until the butter separates. This will take 5-10 minutes and you will know when it’s done because you’ll see the butter.

There will also be some buttermilk. Pour off the buttermilk, store for later use.

Remove your butter from the processor and give a quick rinse. You can dry in cheesecloth, squeezing gently to remove excess moisture, or set on a coffee filter a couple of minutes.

Add the fresh made butter to a bowl and add salt, combine. If you prefer unsalted butter omit the salt. Salt is a natural preservative however and helps your fresh butter keep longer.

If you want to make herb butter add your herbs in before storage in the refrigerator.

Use immediately and store leftovers in the refrigerator.

Yield: 1 Stick of Butter

Preparing fresh made goods is a great skill to have so that you have the know how to self sustain in the event that you can’t get what you need from the convenience of a grocery store.

We never know what will happen and if there will be food shortages or crazy events happening in the world that require us to stay home. Self sufficiency to some level is a necessity.
