  • 8 oz heavy cream
  • salt to taste


  • Pour 8 oz of cream into your container and add some salt if you like the taste of salted butter.
  • Tightly close your container and shake. It will take about 7-10 minutes of shaking before the butter forms.
  • Drain off the liquid that has separated from the butter and stir the butter.


You can refrigerate the leftover butter as you would with store bought butter.
