I would like to try to reduce the amount of sugars and chemicals that my family consumes. I have heard of a bunch of people making their own butter to reduce preservatives. This past week I had purchased a small container of heavy cream and we purchased butter just in case I messed it up. I looked up online how to do it.
I got myself a canning jar with a lid and poured in half the container of the heavy cream. Screwed on the lid tight. And literally shook the jar back and forth for 15-20 minutes while updating my gardening blog information. I had read that you will want to drain off the buttermilk at the top when 20 minutes is up. I used heavy cream and I didnt get buttermilk at the top. I added nothing to my butter, it is so light and fluffy.
Butter in a jar! Yum!!
