One-Ingredient Homemade Butter

Makes 1 cup butter



2 cups heavy cream

1/4 teaspoon salt, optional



Pour cream into a food processor or blender. Process for 10 minutes, or until the butter separates. Strain off the liquid. Season to taste with salt, if you like. Press butter into a small bowl with the back of a spoon to further remove liquid.


Also, if you want a compote butter, add finely chopped herbs, fruit or other flavorings. Get creative!
