How to make butter and buttermilk out of heavy cream

Making homemade butter is easier than you think! Follow these few easy steps and you’ll have butter in no time! Save that leftover buttermilk and use it for marinades, baking and many more!

Ingredients for making butter and buttermilk:

Heavy whipping cream: Cold heavy whipping cream.

How to make butter/ buttermilk:

Whipping the heavy cream: In a stand mixer, pour in your cold  heavy whipping cream. Use the whisk attachment to beat your heavy cream on a medium to high speed. Once you start seeing that your cream is over-beaten, and butter is starting to form, turn down your mixer speed to a low setting. If you keep beating it at a high setting the buttermilk will splash out.

Straining the butter mixture: Once butter has formed strain through a strainer. Allow the butter to stand in the strainer for a couple of minutes to remove buttermilk from it. You can also squeeze your butter with your hands to remove any leftover buttermilk from your butter. This is optional, you can add your butter into an ice cold water and rinse a couple time until your water is clean. Remove any extra water from it. Save your buttermilk and use it for marinades, baking and more!

Storing butter: You can store butter in a glass container with a lid, form it into a log or make compound butter out of it. Store butter in the fridge.
