"Surprisingly simple, for those times you want your own lovely butter here is the method. You can do it by hand or using a food processor and add flavors too. Since it is not any cheaper than storebought, probably best used to spread on breads and muffins etc rather than to cook in something. Update 30/02/12. YES! it works! Delicious too. Added in some flavor options"

"I love making homemade butter and this is great. I did the jar method and we loved it. I didn't run water over it because I knew it would be gone in a day anyway. I am looking forward to using the buttermilk for pancakes tomorrow. I will try the food processor method when I make a bigger batch."
"Perfect - and I made it MYSELF! :) I only used about 6 oz. of cream, shaking it in the jar and it worked fairly quickly. Thanks for the easy way to make your own butter; I feel so virtuous! Thanks for sharing, MarraMamba!"
"Made this as an experiment in a 20 ounce jar , using the jar method. Actually the process of this is very simple, and no trouble at all. I made 4 pieces of toast (1 for each) as a test run to see how everyone likes it, and passed with flying colors. Can't wait to try it on something else in the future. Made for Holiday tag"
"I've been wanting to try this, and finally did. It couldn't have been easier! (I used the food processor method). Since this was a trial run, I only used 1/2 pint of cream, and omitted the salt, because I don't used salted butter. The 1/2 pint yielded, by weight, 3 7/8 oz of beautifully smooth and creamy butter, and as a pleasant by-product, it also yielded about 1/3 cup buttermilk. The flavor is fabulous; I just had some on a nice thick slice of homemade bread. I'll definitely do this again!!!"
"Hi MarraMamba, I put a pint of whipping creme 33% BF into my Kitchen Aid mixer with paddle the creme was at room temperature and put the mixer on at the second lowest setting for 30 minutes. Then viola butter with about 1 cup of buttermilk I did not add the salt! I am making a banana cake this morning and needed 3/4 cup of butter and this whipping creme needed to be used and I did not want to go to the store in - 30 round trip 60 minutes so thank you very much for re - instilling the art of butter making into my life! The last time I did this was in high school home economics class and when I think of all the creme I have thrown out what a waste of money! Again many thanks for posting."
"It still amazes me how easy it is to make butter after seeing my Aunt working hard over an old butter churn. I used my food processor This is very good . I didn't add the saly but will next time. It is not cheap to make but is fun Made for Newest Zaar Tag NOTE: If you find whipping cream on sale this can be a bit cheaper then buying butter. Right now our store has a 500ml ( about 2 cups) carton of whipping cream on sale for 1.99 that gave me just over 1/2 pound of butter . Salted butter is 2.97 a pound here BUT unsalted is 4.29 a pound. I will be going to buy more to make the unsalted version LOL"
"Made this at camp as a kid. We would pass the jar method around as it gets tiring. Nice to have someone else help."
