DIRECTIONS

  • Place a clean marble in the jar along with a pinch of salt if you are using it. The marble is optional but makes the shaking go faster, I couldn't list it in the ingredients list.
  • Fill the jar no more than 2/3 full with cream.
  • Screw the lid on tightly and shake.
  • Shake.
  • Shake some more.
  • After a few minutes of hard shaking the cream will start to ball up and separate into butter and buttermilk. The first sign is the glass going from milky to clear.
  • Pour off the buttermilk and shake again. Do this until no more buttermilk separates out.
  • You now have real homemade butter that you can slather onto bread and enjoy.
  • Yield depends on the ammount of cream you use.
