Try making your own butter with this easy recipe.

Directions

  1. Fit the steel knife blade into the work bowl of your food processor.
  2. Process cream until whipped, about 30 seconds.
  3. Add water and ice cubes.
  4. Process 2-3 minutes until butter has formed and separated from the liquid.
  5. No harm will be done if you overwhip this mixture. Pour butter and liquid into a fine strainer.
  6. With a rubber spatula, gently press butter against sieve to remove excess moisture. DO NOT press too hard or butter will go through strainer.
  7. Refrigerate butter in a covered container.
  8. This makes 1/3 cup butter.
  9. If you prefer salted butter, add 1/8 teaspoon or less of salt to cream before processing.

This was so much fun to make. I used my blender since I don't have a food processor.I can't believe how quick it is to make. I grew up with my Aunt's homemade butter that was not very good LOL This was really nice but next time I will add just a bit of salt.It is sweeter then a store bought butter. I used a piece of cheescloth in my sieve so I could gently use it to "squeeze " the liquid out. It would be a fun thing to do with the kids on a stormy day. I will be making this again when whipped cream goes on sale.
