Butter has been used since ancient times. It was first made with goat and sheep’s milk and later on with cow’s milk.
The word butter comes from the Greek word “bou-tyron” meaning ‘cowcheese.’
People have been making butter in their homes for thousands of years. Today because of the high cost of living and since most food items like butter are costly, some choose to make their own homemade butter.
One of the quickest ways to make homemade butter is in a food processor and with heavy whipping cream. Some people have found success making butter using a blender, cake mixer and even a jar.
Below is a quick and simple recipe to make homemade butter using a food processor. If you don’t have a food processor you can use a blender or cake mixer.
Homemade Butter using heavy cream
Take two cups of heavy whipping cream. The cream should be left out at room temperature to soften for a few minutes.
Blend the 2 cups of heavy whipping cream in a food processor until the butter separates from the liquid (for about 10 minutes).
Then place in a cheese cloth/muslin cloth and strain squeezing out all the liquid. Make sure you have removed all the liquid before storing the homemade butter in a container. You can add ¼ teaspoon salt to add more flavor to it.
