- 1. Whirl cream in a food processor until it separates into buttermilk and clumps of butter-they'll look like fluffy scrambled eggs. Keep whirling until butter forms bigger clumps, about 3 minutes.
- 2. Pour mixture into a strainer (set over a bowl if you want to keep the buttermilk) and let drain briefly. Squeeze butter to extract remaining buttermilk (it's okay if a little is left).
- 3. Put butter into a second bowl and stir in fine sea salt to taste, if you like.
