Not the Farmer’s Daughter

When people think about making their own butter they may have thoughts of farms and milking a cow or perhaps sitting on an old porch churning butter with a wooden butter churn. I promise I do not own a cow or a bonnet.  Making butter does not have to involve all that. It can be easily done with a food processor , stand mixer , blender , or an electric beater . You can even do it with a mason jar, but that may be a bit too much work, yet if that is the route you want to go you can get it done that way too.

Store-Bought Vs Homemade

I do like to buy things at the store just because it is more convenient, however, if I can make it myself without a whole lot of hassle, I would rather do that. With this recipe, you can make your own butter in less than 10 minutes. I also think it is cheaper to make it at home. I can usually get a better deal on heavy cream than on butter. You should buy the best quality heavy cream you can and be sure there are no additives. Always look over any packaged goods you buy, including heavy cream, to check the ingredients. Food manufacturers like sneak stuff into things, so make sure you know what you are getting. I like to know exactly what I am putting into my recipes. So if I can make the butter, I would rather do that. Let me show you how you can too. 🙂

This would go perfectly with our Keto Bread or our Garlic Mashed Cauliflower .

Servings 8 oz


  • 16 oz. heavy cream
  • Himalayan pink salt optional


  • Add the heavy cream to a food processor.
  • Blend for 6-8 minutes or until the butter separates. You will see liquid splashing on the top of the food processor lid.
  • Strain off the liquid, add salt (optional), and pulse to mix into the butter.
  • Add the butter into the center of a clean kitchen towel. Fold the towel around the butter so it is well enclosed in the towel.
  • Run the towel (with the butter enclosed inside) under cold water. Squeeze the water out and repeat this until the water runs clear. Squeeze any remaining water out of the butter.
  • Remove the butter from the towel and wrap in cling wrap or parchment paper.
  • Refrigerate and enjoy.


You could also do this with a stand mixer , blender or an electric beater .
