Making butter at home is incredibly simple, and so, so fascinating!
1 cup Organic Valley Heavy Whipping Cream
1/2 tsp rosemary, chopped
1 tsp thyme, chopped
1 tsp sage, chopped
1/4 tsp salt (or to taste)
Pour heavy whipping cream into a canning jar. Note: begin with room temperature heavy cream for quickest results.
Tighten lid on canning jar. Begin to shake in a steady back-and-forth manner. Shake for 10-20 minutes.
You can stop shaking when the heavy whipping cream hardens and forms a ball within the canning jar.
Place a fine mesh strainer over a bowl. Pour the buttermilk and butter into the strainer. Gently press on the solids with a wooden spoon to remove any excess buttermilk.
Keeping the butter in the fine mesh strainer, knead it under cold water to work out any buttermilk.
Place the dried ingredients in a bowl. Add the butter ball, and mix thoroughly with a fork.
Scrape together and enjoy your butter smeared over fresh-from-the-oven bread, muffins, or whatever you enjoy with butter!
