Homemade Butter

All you need is fresh heavy cream—and maybe a little salt, if you want salted butter. That’s it. (No, really: That’s it.) No, you don’t need a butter churn Unless, of course, you have one. When I told one of my best friends that I made butter, he exclaimed something like, “Wait, you don’t have a butter churn…do you?” (If you know me—and you know how much cooking equipment is socked away in our kitchen and basement—it’s always good to doublecheck these details.) No, I don’t have a butter churn. I have something better: An electric mixer. As good as it would be for my arms, I’m not sure I could hack churning butter the old-fashioned way. I should note that this isn’t a cheaper way of stocking up on butter. But you don’t make butter this way because you want to save money. Which everyone should do at least once in their life.

What is butter made of, anyway? Butter is made of a few things: Butterfat, water, and milk proteins.
