I've seen homemade butter online before, but I always thought that it must be so hard. And then I never really looked much into it after that! Until my boyfriend came across a blog that said it was better then any store bought butter and told me it looked pretty easy. So I looked into it, and found out that it was only 2 ingredients! WHAT!! That was actually really shocking to me, I assumed there were at least a couple of more. So here's how I did it:
1 1/2 cups of heavy whipping cream
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
Strainer or mesh colander
Pour the heavy whipping cream into the mixer and turn on high. Stay on this step for a few minutes until it begins to clump up kind of like cookie dough!
Once the buttermilk and the clumps begin to separate, turn your mixer off.
Put the clumps into the cheese cloth
Step four: Pour the buttermilk through the strainer, or cheese cloth again to get all of the clumps out
Step five: Wring out the clumps in the cheese cloth as much as possible
Step six: Rinse the ball of butter in a bath of cold water. (You may need to repeat this step 2-4 times, until the water is clear)
Step seven: Sprinkle the salt over the butter and mix it in.
Step eight: Roll into a log and serve when you're ready to eat!
