Making Butter

Andrew and I got the idea to make butter. We had seen a few blogs about people making their own butter and it looked pretty easy.

We watched this video on YouTube and followed exactly. It was easy. And tasty!

It’s just like making whipped cream except you just keep whipping it until the liquid separates into butter and buttermilk.

Our final product. Butter. We added Italian herbs and garlic to some of it to make flavored butter.


  1. It depends on what kind/brand of butter you get. Butter should only have one or two ingredients: cream and salt (optional). The butter we get from Munroe Dairy has only those two ingredients so it's not healthier than that per se, but it is better than some of the kinds you get at the grocery store that have ingredients like dextrin, monoglycerides, lactic acid, sodium benzoate, xanthan, soybean oil, etc.
