How To Make Homemade Butter


  • Yield: About 4-5 ounces

Ingredients

  • 2 cups organic heavy cream
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt (optional)

Instructions

  1. Pour cream into stand mixer with whisk attachment. Cover outside of mixer with plastic wrap to prevent splashing and turn mixer on medium high.
  2. Beat cream until the solids have separate and turned yellow, about 8-10 minutes.
  3. Strain solids from liquids using a fine mesh strainer. Take solids on your hands and squeeze until you have gotten as much liquid out as possible.
  4. If you like your butter salted, add sea salt in 1/8 teaspoon increments until it has the flavor you like.
  5. Store in covered container in the fridge – butter will keep for about 5 days or so.
