You Will Need
- 2 c. heavy cream
- A glass jar with a lid
- 1 clean glass marble
- A large mesh strainer
- A bowl
- Clean hands or a spoon
- Parchment paper or a butter bowl
- And a refrigerator
- 1⁄2 tsp. salt
- A slice of bread, fresh or toasted
Pour the cream into the glass jar.
Add the marble and close the jar tightly.
Shake. And shake. And shake some more. Now… continue shaking.
After several minutes, the cream will start giving off its liquid and getting chunky; this indicates the butter is starting to form. Keep shaking!
Pour into strainer
When you can see lumps of butter in a milky liquid, pour the contents of the jar into a strainer set over a bowl.
With clean hands or a spoon, press on the butter in the strainer, extracting whatever liquid remains. Let it drain.
Remove the butter from the strainer. Roll it into a log and wrap it with parchment paper or press it into a pottery bowl, and chill it in the refrigerator.
For an immediate treat, immediately spread the fresh butter on the most delicious bread you can find. Your hard work paid off!
