You may think it's hard to make and you make think that you are just not cut out to be churning butter.
But this method is so quick and so simple and produces the most delicious creamiest butter you'll ever find. You will wonder why you haven't been making butter your whole life.
1 empty, clean jar with a tight fitting lid
Pour the whipping cream into the jar and close tightly. You gotta make sure that lid is on there really good.
Now you're going to start shaking, just shake and shake and shake some more. Pass it around the house and let the husband and little kids get in on it too. The kids were dancing around with it in the living room. Just to be safe, if you want you could use a plastic jar too so that if it falls it won't break.
You'll notice the butter go through different stages. When you first start shaking you feel it swooshing in there, then it covers the whole side of the jar, then eventually it will start pulling away from the sides and turning solid.
Once the butter has turned solid, drain out the buttermilk. DON'T through it away, that is the best part, you can use it for pancakes or biscuits or waffles or even for fried chicken.
Mine is in the refrigerator and will be used for the biscuits I'm making for tomorrow's dinner.
At this point, I ran it under some cold water until the water was clear. Then I added some salt and stirred it up real good.
You don't have to add salt, you can leave it unsalted, it's up to you.
Here's the buttermilk....YUM!
Go on and spread it on some warm bread and let me know what you think. We all agreed that this was one of the most delicious butters we had ever tasted and from now on, I'll be making my own instead of buying from the store.
If only I had done this before, I think of all the times I ran out of butter in the house and had whipping cream sitting right there. What a waste LOL
