Butter is the essential ingredient in many recipes, but did you ever stop to think how butter is made and if it had a recipe of it's own?  I have the best news...IT DOES!  Homemade butter is 10 minutes away and you will never look back (David and I are so happy with these results).


2 cups heavy whipping cream
1/2 teaspoon salt

1. In a food processor combine whipping cream and salt (you can also do this with an egg beater or a Kitchen Aid stand mixer on high speed)
2. Process on high speed until the butter starts to separate from the butter milk (about 5-6 minutes).
3. Remove processor container and carefully drain excess liquid over the sink.
4. Use a spatula to press the remaining butter milk out of the butter solid.
5. Finally, using your hands, gently massage remaining liquid out of the butter and put in an airtight container in the fridge.
6. Use as you would butter for any other recipe.
