How to Make Homemade Butter
May 17, 2018

My son and I have been wanting to make our own butter for a while now. Thank you. Also, I found the answer you asked for, about the cold water... Now you need to "rinse" the butter. It is important to remove as much buttermilk as possible to keep the butter from going rancid. Put the butter back in your mixing bowl and cover with clean, cold water. With the back of your wide spoon, begin pressing the butter into the side of the bowl. The water will get cloudy as the buttermilk is "cleaned" out of the butter. Pour the water off and add more cold water. Repeat this process 4-5 times or until the water stays clear. Done!
