Gather Your Ingredients and Gear Up for Butter-Making Adventure

To embark on your butter-making journey, you’ll need just one key ingredient: heavy cream. This rich and decadent cream is the foundation of your homemade butter. Opt for high-quality heavy cream to ensure the best results. Remember, the better the cream, the better the butter!

Whipping, Churning, and Transforming Cream into Butter

In a mixer’s bowl, pour the 34 fl oz (1000 ml) of heavy cream. Start the mixer and let the magic begin! As the cream whips and churns, watch in awe as it gradually transforms into beautiful butter. This process typically takes around 10 minutes, but keep an eye on it as the time may vary.

The Moment of Truth: Extracting and Perfecting Your Homemade Butter

Once the butter has formed, transfer it to a separate bowl. Now comes the exciting part—extracting the liquids. Exert pressure on the butter to remove any excess liquid. This step helps enhance the richness and texture of the final product.

Finishing Touches and Storage

To ensure your homemade butter stays fresh and ready to use, dip it into a bowl filled with cold water. This will help remove any remaining liquid and give the butter a clean finish. Once done, transfer the butter to a bowl lined with parchment paper. Gently press the butter to form a solid block, then cover it with another piece of parchment paper.
