- 227g pot of double cream
- A pinch of sea salt
- Lidded jar
- Marbles (optional)
- A food processor (optional)
Place the cream and salt in a lidded container (or divide between a few jars – one for each shaker). If you have some, add a few clean marbles to the mix as this will help mix it up faster.
Or, you can just add everything to a food processor if you have one. Just blend (treating your food processor like a butter churn) for a few mins till a lump of butter forms, 3-5 mins.
If you're going down the jam jar route, simply shake it up. You’ll really have to use your muscles and give it your all. First it’ll just look like whipped cream, then it’ll separate. It can take up to 10-15 mins. Come on, shake it...
As soon as the sound changes and it sounds like a big lump spinning or shaking it should be done. Have a peak. If you can see butter, spoon it out. Strain out the whey or buttermilk. Use it to make homemade buttermilk pancakes, soda bread or scones. See our website for recipes.
