From recipegoldmine.Place bowl and blade of a food processor into the freezer for 4 to 5 hours.Preparation time=freezing time and cooking time=processing time.The heavy cream is the only ingredient needed,but since Zaar needs at least two ingredients I added salt.Don't use it if you want unsalted butter.


  1. Turn on the food processor, and pour the cream through the feed tube. Process for about 10 minutes, until butter has hardened around the blade, leaving the liquid that has separated from the cream in the bottom of the bowl.
  2. Transfer the butter to a sieve and shake 2 or 3 times over the sink to allow any excess liquid to drain.
  3. Put the butter in a bowl, cover, and chill for at least 1 hour before using.
  4. Store it in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.

I swear I already reviewed this, but alas, I hadn't. Either way, I have been using this recipe for a while now, and love it incredibly. I also used my KA, and this worked out perfect, diner really went the extra mile working with the buttermilk and making sure it was rinsed. This is an absolute great recipe, easy to follow, and perfect to devour. This is the one recipe I depend on. Now....where's that fresh bread? Thanks little! Hugs from the farm.

I'm so proud of myself; I made butter! :-) My food processor was in service, doing something else, so I was happy to see diner's review, using her KA. My bowl and balloon whip was in the freezer already! I did have a bit of trouble, draining off the liquid. I ended up gathering together the coffee filter around the little pieces and just squeezing, rinsing and squeezing several times. Seems like the butter would become stuck in the cheesecloth, but I didn't try that way. I also added sea salt, as we use salted butter here. I will keep this in mind when I am making something that calls for unsalted butter; I usually have cream, so I wouldn't need to run out for unsalted butter! AWESOME! Thanks for sharing, littlemafia!

Wow how cool!!! I never knew how to make butter and it is so easy with todays appliances. I used my KitchenAid with the whipping attachment. Since I wasn't sure if it would work with the KA, I went and looked on line and found several videos of people/chefs demonstrating how to make butter with the KA. They also specified that you should rinse out all the buttermilk with cold water several times from the butter, as if it still has buttermilk in it, it will go rancid. So I did do that also when making this butter. I did add sea salt as I am using it with homemade bread tonight. This was so fun to make and watch it change. Thanks for sharing such a great and fun recipe. Made for Holiday Tag.
