2 cups heavy cream (chilled)

1/4 teaspoon salt (optional)

Whip the Cream: Pour the chilled heavy cream into the mixing bowl. Start beating the cream on

medium speed using an electric mixer or stand mixer with a whisk attachment. You can also use a

food processor. Continue to beat the cream past the soft peak stage, and then to the stiff peak stage,

until it begins to separate. This process will take about 5-10 minutes.

Separate the Butter: As you continue beating, the cream will separate into butter and buttermilk. The

butter will form clumps and separate from the liquid. Once the separation is complete, turn off the

mixer.

Strain the Buttermilk: Pour the mixture through a fine-mesh strainer or cheesecloth to separate the

butter from the buttermilk. Reserve the buttermilk for other uses, like baking or cooking.

Rinse the Butter: Place the butter in a bowl and pour cold water over it. Use a spatula or your hands

to knead the butter, rinsing away any remaining buttermilk. Repeat this process a few times, changing

the water until it runs clear. This step helps to prolong the shelf life of your butter.

Add Salt: If you prefer salted butter, knead in 1/4 teaspoon of salt to the butter. Adjust the amount to

taste.

Shape and Store: Shape the butter into a block or ball, and wrap it in parchment paper or plastic

wrap. Store the butter in the refrigerator for up to 1 week, or in the freezer for longer storage.
