That’s right!  You can make this simple butter in under 10 minutes and choose to add salt or flavors.  Try it!


What you need:

A good mixer or food processor



Optional: Cheesecloth to drain




For plain table butter:

1 litre of Whipping Cream

Optional: Sea salt or regular iodized table salt


To make Orange Honey Butter:

1 cup (250 ml) homemade or store  bought butter softened

2 tbsp (30 mL) Orange Zest (Peel)

Honey to your taste as needed


How to make it:


Plain butter:

  1. Empty entire 1 liter carton of whipping cream into a bowl.
  2. Using high speed on either your mixer or food processor, blend the cream until it starts to thicken and the fat and liquid are separated which takes about 8 or 9 minutes.
  3. When it is thickened, remove the blades from the bowl and then scoop out the butter.  You can keep the liquid and use it in a recipe for buttermilk or just toss it down your sink.
  4. Put the butter into another bowl of icy water and squeeze out the excess liquid.  You can use the optional cheesecloth for this if you like.
  5. You can add a little salt if you want now and it’s ready to be refrigerated.  This will stay for up to one month.
Orange Honey Butter:
  1. Using the above homemade butter recipe or softened store bought butter, put the butter back into your mixing bowl and add the orange zest and honey to one cup of softened butter.

You can also make garlic butter with this recipe and adding crushed garlic to your liking for awesome garlic bread!

Good luck!
