Yeah, that's right, I said Homemade Butter! Impressed yet? Well, don't be too impressed, it was really really easy! And oh my goodness is it tasty!! So rich and creamy!!
heavy cream, room temperature
yup, one ingredient!
But if you would like to make salted butter, you can add a big pinch of salt.
What you'll do:
Pour cream into a airtight container with plenty of room. I used a ziploc twist lid container.
First it will turn into whipped cream:
Then it will turn grainy, then little balls of butter will form into a larger ball and a thin liquid will pull away:
Once you've got a solid and a liquid in the container. By the way, it takes about 20 minutes of shaking! Strain it through cheese cloth or a metal mesh strainer:
This is a great activity to do with your kids! They will have a blast shaking!
