How to make homemade butter and buttermilk

It is pretty easy to make homemade butter, and it tastes so much better than the stored one.   My 13 year-old son started it at first.  He pour about 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream in a small jar that is sterilized, then shook it for 20 minutes around until it separates the butter ( solid) from the buttermilk ( liquid). Then he squeezed the excess buttermilk from the butter and covered the butter with plastic wrap very tightly and refrigerated it.  He dumped the liquid ( buttermilk) at this time. We didn’t know about  the liquid was buttermilk!

I use a stand mixer or hand mixer because I can make homemade butter and buttermilk within 10 minutes.

How to make homemade butter and buttermilk

Ingredient:

  •   Heavy whipping cream   ( as much as  you want )
  •   1.5-1.6 % salt as to unsalted butter’s weight  if you want to make salted butter.

1) Pour some heavy whipping cream in a bowl and beat the cream at 10 speed ( highest speed ) until it curdles.

2) Place the butter into a cheese cloth ( or linen cloth ) and squeeze out any excess buttermilk . Don’t throw the liquid, it is real buttermilk.

3) Gather all the butter and put in plastic wrap and wrap it up very tightly and refrigerate it.

 you can add 1.5-1.6% salt as to the butter’s weight and knead until incorporated is you want to make salted butter.

Don’t forget to refrigerate the buttermilk, too!
