  • 2 cups cream, any cream will work
  • 2-3 TBSP buttermilk, must be cultured!


  • Pour about 2 cups of cream into a glass jar. You can use your cream straight out of the refrigerator.
  • Add about 2-3 tablespoons of buttermilk and stir well.
  • Cover the jar with a lid, beeswax wrap, cloth, or any other cover.
  • Place the cream in the covered container on your counter at room temperature for anywhere from 8 hours to 2 days. Check your cream mixture for your preferred “sourness” or tanginess.
  • Pour the sour cream into your blender. Blend on a low to medium setting until the mixture turns into whipped cream but continue blending until the fat separates from the liquid.
  • Strain the butter. You can keep the remaining buttermilk and enjoy straight or use it in your favorite recipes.
  • Use filtered, cold water to wash the butter and strain. Repeat this step until the water is no longer milky or cloudy.
  • Now, use the butter paddles to squeeze out as much liquid as you can.
  • Transfer your butter into a nice jar, parchment paper, wax paper, or butter bell.
