How to Make Homemade Butter

Author Larisha Campbell


  • 1 cup heavy cream


  1. Pour heavy cream into a mason jar with lid and ring and seal (or into a bowl using a hand mixer).
  2. Shake from 10-15 minutes.
  3. You are done shaking or mixing when yellow curds emerge and liquid re-separates from the solids.
  4. Using a cheesecloth, double fold for a total of 4 layers.
  5. Over a bowl, add the curds on top of the cheesecloth and then pull up and gently squeeze until all the liquid has drained.
  6. Rinse the butter ball with cold water to prevent it from going rancid.
  7. Use butter and buttermilk immediately or store in air tight containers.
