Making butter using fresh milk.  If you are able to get fresh milk that would be great but you can use a container of Heavy Whipping Cream.

How to:

  • ladel the cream from the top of the jar.  Do not put the ladel very far into the jar.
  • put cream into a food processor
  • put a 1/8 of a teaspoon of iodized salt.
  • run food processor on high for about 5 minutes.  You will be able to see the liquid cream turn into small chunks.
  • run the food processor until the chunks are a little larger like the picture below.
  • milkandbutter
  • scrape the chunks of butter into your hand and mold into a ball
  • as you are molding run a little cool water over the butter
  • squeeze the mold a little until you see clear liquid
  • Done!  put the small mold into a glass container or a small coffee cup.

This butter will last for 7 days in the fridge.
