Gone are the days when making butter was hard work. Today, you can make butter in a matter of minutes!
For basic butter, all you need is whipping cream and a pinch of salt (and the salt is even optional).
Equipment-wise, you can use a food processor, a blender, or a whisking device of your choosing (although we don't recommend a hand-held whisk, that might take just a little too much work!)
Once processed, you'll have fresh butter and a liquid called churn buttermilk — a sweet, milky liquid that you can use in baked goods like this no-knead focaccia bread for extra flavour.
Whipping cream will roughly yield half the amount of butter by weight. For example, the below recipe uses 1.2 L of whipping cream and yields around 600 grams of butter. You can of course make as much or little as you'd like.
Check out the video and recipe below for the simple method, and get ready to impress friends and family with homemade butter.
