Making your own butter is one of the easiest and most delicious things you can do. In a pinch for time, but need to feed guests a quick breakfast? Go to your local bakery and buy some good rolls and serve them with home-made butter!

Heavy Whipping Cream

Salt to Taste

Herbs, Honey, Maple Syrup, Strawberry Jam (Optional)

Place all in a mixer or processor and beat on high for forever and a day until it goes from liquid, to soft peaks, to very stiff peaks, and then finally starts to clump up and release liquid. When it looks as though no more liquid (buttermilk!) will release, remove the clumps and combine to make one big clump. Gently rinse your clump under water and then pat dry. Presenting... drum roll please... butter! Yep, that's it. Place it in a small container and you are ready to go.
