Project 9/366: Homemade Whip Butter

Have you ever had a homemade whip butter before? If not, then you should try this one. I mean, it is absolutely delicious, sweet and creamy. The moment my husband taught me how to do it, I was hooked. I have been making this for like 5 times since. It's easy to make and absolutely worth making. Here's what to do.

You'll need:

One heavy whipping cream with no preservatives and you let it sit out of the refrigerator overnight. The next day, pour it into a tight lid jar. You are going to need a tight lid vessel for this just so it won't be spilling all over the place once you shake it up. With mine I used a clean and empty Prego jar. I have quite a few of these at home since we love to eat pasta, but you can absolutely use whatever you prefer just as long as it has a tight lid. I think a mason jar would do too.

Shake the jar with the cream in it for about three (3) minutes or until the cream is no longer sticking to the jar. You will feel that the cream is starting to clump up and it will look like the photo below.

Once the cream looks like this, no longer sticking to the jar, then you made your own homemade butter, but you are not done.

There is your butter right there. The liquid around it is what you called the "buttermilk".

Pour the buttermilk into a different container and save that to make some buttermilk pancake or buttermilk biscuit the next day or whatever you want to do with it. Make sure to store it right away in the refrigerator so it won't spoil.

Once you are done draining the buttermilk off, then you are going to put some water just about a half of the jar full and shake it up lightly. You are doing this because you want to get rid of some of the buttermilk left. I think it's because the buttermilk will spoil the butter so you want to do this step. You drain the water off and you don't need to save that. Just toss it away.

And here is your butter! One creamy, sweet unsalted butter. If you want it to be salty, then you just add a pinch of salt into the butter. I love pairing it with my homemade Outback Steakhouse Honey Wheat Bushman bread that I happened to have some tonight freshly baked. KALAMI (delicious)! Enjoy! Let me know how yours turned out!

Note: I learned this method from my husband and he also learned this from an article he found. I will make sure to let him send me the article so I can give credit to whoever came up with this method of butter making. Thank you!
