How to make homemade old-fashioned arm powered butter.
- Pour cream into a jar and screw on the lid. Shake jar vigorously until butter forms a soft lump, 15 to 20 minutes. Continue to shake until buttermilk separates out of the lump and the jar contains a solid lump of butter and liquid buttermilk.
- Pour contents of the jar into a towel and press out the buttermilk, leaving the solid butter. Remove the lump of butter and wrap it. Refrigerate until needed or use directly on your bread.
Helpful tips: You can do this in a food processor much faster and take it out in a insulated food canister like we usually do. The butter will separate faster if your heavy cream is room temperatured.
