Mmmm butter… condiment, sauce, cooking oil…butter is used each day in so many ways and the reason for that is, it’s freaking delicious! Here’s a quick newsflash that’s going to rock your buttery little world; you haven’t lived until you’ve tasted freshly made butter. This might sound pretty labor intensive, but the good news is it’s actually easy to make fresh, homemade butter right at home. Try this recipe and experience the rich creamy taste and you’ll never want to go back to store bought butter again.

Servings: 200 grams

Ingredients

  • 1 liter heavy cream (you can use any amount of 35% cream as long as it fits in your food processor)
  • Cold water
  • Salt (optional)

Equipment

  • Food processor
  • Fine mesh sieve
  • 2 medium bowls

Method

  • Pour the heavy cream into your food processor fitted with the regular chopping blade.
  • Turn on the processor to medium and process the cream for 5-8 minutes, or until the buttermilk starts to separate from the milk fats (the food processor will start to sound different when this happens.)
  • Place the sieve over a medium bowl and drain the contents of food processor into it. The buttermilk will drain into the bowl and milk fats will collect in the sieve. Gather the butter solids and dunk in a bowl of cold water.
  • Using your hands, knead the butter together pressing out any remaining buttermilk. Repeat this process, submerging the butter in fresh cold water and kneading until the water is clear and all buttermilk is removed.
  • If desired, knead in some salt (start with about ¼ teaspoon.)
  • Shape butter into a stick or whatever shape is desired, wrap in parchment paper and store in the fridge.
  • Enjoy on fresh baked bread or baked goods for maximum butter satisfaction.
