HOMEMADE BUTTER

INGREDIENTS

2 cups heavy cream

DIRECTIONS

  1. Pour heavy cream into a food processor, blender, or mixer. Blend, shake, or whip on low and gradually add speed until solids separate from the liquid.

  2. Add the butter onto a cheesecloth, gather cloth from all sides, and twist until the remaining liquid is gone.

  3. Remove from the cheesecloth, and run the cloth butter under cold water

  4. Place your butter in a small bowl or container and add the salt or any number of flavors like fresh herbs or honey to give it a compound kick.

  5. Stick it in the fridge to extend its two-week shelf life.
