Makes 1 cup butter and 3/4 cup sweet buttermilk

Homemade butter tastes sweeter and fresher than ordinary store-bought butter—and so does the buttermilk that's left over.

How to Make It

Step 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.

Step 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).

Step 3

Put butter into a second bowl and stir in fine sea salt to taste, if you like.

Step 4
