Description

Easy to make homemade butter! Add different ingredients. Get the kids to help!

Ingredients

  • 5 jars Empty And Clean Baby Food Jar (small)
  • 1 pint Heavy Cream
  • 5 pinches Salt, One Per Jar
  • Optional Add-ins: Red Pepper Flakes, Garlic And Herbs, Chopped Herbs Or Dried Fruit, Sugar And Cocoa

Preparation

Let’s make butter and spread the love this Valentine’s Day!

I was inspired by my crafty daughter (the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree) who teaches preschoolers and had her little ones make butter as Christmas gifts for their parents.

I wanted to try making some and even expanded on it by adding different ingredients.

This is the best butter ever! You can even make it organic by using organic heavy cream!

I don’t know about you, but I can’t find organic butter at my grocery store.

What you’ll need:
– Clean baby food jars or small plastic containers. I found these mini storage containers at the Dollar Tree, which work great for kids. If you use larger jars, the shaking time will be longer.
– Organic heavy cream or heavy whipping cream. One pint of cream will make several small baby food jars of butter.
– A pinch of salt in each jar. I used kosher salt. You don’t have to add salt if you don’t want to.
– Any extra ingredients you’d like to add such as red pepper flakes, garlic and herbs, chopped nuts or dried fruit, or sugar and cocoa. It’s fun to experiment! Depending on the size of the jar will determine how much you need to add in. If you’re using small baby food jars, add in just a pinch of red pepper flakes or a teaspoon of garlic. If adding cocoa and sugar, add in a teaspoon or so.

Let’s get started!

First, make sure your containers are clean!

Pour the cream into the containers leaving just a bit of space at the top for the cream to expand.

Add your ingredients– a pinch of salt for salted butter and anything else you wish.

Make sure the lid is secure. Hand everyone in the family a container full. Set a timer for 15 minutes. Turn on some music and then: Shake, shake, shake. Shake, shake, shake. Shake your butter! Shake your butter! You’ll start to see and feel the cream solidifying while you’re shaking it. Shake it until the timer goes off. If you’re using larger containers, you’ll need to shake it longer. You can remove the lid at anytime to check on your progress.

Your butter is done! Have a taste! YUMMY!

You can refrigerate it if you wish.
