One pint of whipping cream yields almost exactly 1 cup of butter, equal to 2 sticks.

  1. 1 pint of Heavy Cream or heavy whipping cream
  2. Salt to taste
  • Pour the heavy cream into a glass jar, tighten the lid, and shake
  • After about 7 minutes, the cream becomes whipped cream
  • fter about 3 more minutes of shaking, the whipped cream begins to separate into butter and buttermilk
  • Pour the buttermilk into a separate container. You can drink it or save it for cooking
  • Wash the remainder of the buttermilk off the butter by pouring enough clean water into the jar with the butter to cover it completely. Swish it around enough to rinse and then drain the water from the jar
  • Place the butter in another container (such as a small bowl) and mix it around with a fork or knife to release any additional buttermilk and pour it off again
  • Add salt to/li>

  • Interestingly, shaking works faster than a hand-held electric mixer, which can make whipped cream in about a minute, but take about 14 more minutes to turn it into butter.
