How to Make Butter From Whipping or Heavy Cream

Things You'll Need:

•whipping cream or heavy cream
•wide mouth quart jar with a tight fitting lid
•small container with lid

Set your cream out for a few hours before starting. Once you have let the cream sit out for a few hours fill your jar half full of cream and don't forget to screw the lid on tightly.

Hold on to the jar by both ends and shake vigorously for about 15 to 20 minutes. Your hands will get tired, but it will be SO worth it! You will feel the cream thicken as you shake. You will know the cream has turned to butter when it has the mass of a small ball.

Pour the ball out into a colander so you can wash the excess cream off. Rinsing it with cold water will help too. Mold the butter into a small container with a lid and add a pinch or two of salt. Now you have homemade butter to enjoy, and you will never forget the taste!
