  • 1 pint sized (16 oz) mason jar.
  • 1 cup heavy cream (38% fat content).
  • cold water.


  1. Pour heavy cream into the mason jar, filling it half-way full. Screw the lid on.
  2. Shake mason jar for approximately 5-7 minutes. After the first 2 minutes you'll have whipped cream. Keep shaking until you hear that a lump has formed inside, and shake an additional 30-60 seconds after that.
  3. Remove the solids from the jar. The remaining liquid is buttermilk. You can save that for other recipes, or discard it.
  4. Place the solids into a small bowl. Pour cold water over the butter and use your hands to squish it into a ball. Discard water and repeat rinsing 2 times more.
  5. At this point you have butter. You can add in things like salt, honey, and herbs to create flavored butters, or serve in its pure form as is.
