You’ll Never Buy Butter from the Store Again After You’ve Made It Yourself (Two Ingredient Recipe)

As we’ve discussed before, it can be really hard to determine what butter can be trusted.

Fortunately, we’re here to help you make your own – and if you’re like us, once you’ve had homemade butter, there will be no turning back!

Even better, you won’t need much – only two ingredients!

  • 2 c heavy cream
  • sea salt, to taste
  • Pour your heavy cream into a food processor and work for 10 minutes, roughly, at which point it should be a thick whipped cream.
  • Continue to work the cream in the processor. When it turns grainy and separates into butter and buttermilk, drain the buttermilk.
  • Scrape butter from sides, place in clean bowl, and strain buttermilk off in a colander.
  • Rinse butter gently with cold water, turning butter over with spoon under cold water until water runs off clear.
  • Lastly, squeeze the last bit of liquid from your butter using wooden spoons or paddles to smash the butter; pour off any resultant liquid.
  • This butter will keep for months.
Alternatively, you can try some of the following ingredients to make your own unique flavored butters:
  • Chopped pecans and honey
  • Coarsely ground black pepper and sea salt
  • Crumbled feta cheese and chopped kalamata olives
  • Grated Parmesan cheese and snipped fresh basil
  • Grated ginger and sesame oil
  • Lemon zest and snipped parsley
  • Orange zest, chopped fresh, or dried cranberries and snipped fresh sage
  • Orange zest, maple syrup, and blueberries
  • Snipped fresh Thai basil, chopped garlic, and chopped, drained, pickled ginger
  • Snipped fresh cilantro, lime zest, and Sriracha, or hot sauce
