On my quest of homesteading and making everything I can, I decided to try to make my own butter. I couldn't believe how easy it was! It only took about 30 minutes and my daughter was able to help. It was so much fun! This post will share with you how you can make your own homemade whipped butter.
Whipping Cream (organic preferred)
Mason Jar & Lid
Pull the whipping cream out of the fridge and let it warm to room temperature. Pour the milk into the mason jar add a little salt and put the lid on. Now shake shake shake! You will get an arm workout and this is where you can have someone else help out. The milk will begin to get thick, there will still be some liquid. This is the buttermilk. Keep shaking the jar until the milk turns into butter. You can open the top and check if you need to. Once the consistency looks right you can strain out the liquid and save it for buttermilk (make your own ranch, or use it as you would normal buttermilk) and keep the butter by placing it into a jar, tupperware, or even put it in wax paper and make it the generic butter cube shape.
That's it! So easy right? And how fulfilling is it to create your own healthy butter!?! And it comes out delicious! I love it! And you can create lots of different flavors, add some herbs, or even some cinnamon. I can't wait to create more butter with lots of different tastes! I would love for you to share your stories or recipes for your favorite butter!
