Not Yo’ Grannies Butter

Here’s what you need:

  • Whole Cream, whipping cream (any cream with high fat content)
  • Food Processor 
  • Salt (Optional)
  • Herbs and Spices (If you want to flavour it)
  • Colander 
  • Sink of cold water
  • Jar or butter dish

Here’s how you do it:

Pour cream into food processor (watch for that little line that says fill or max or else you could end up with milk EVERYWHERE). 

Turn processor on start at low then up to high. 

Let ‘er buck. 

As you work through the stages you will make whipped cream, keep going past that. All of a sudden you will here the change it will sound really wet. It should look like this:

Butter solids separated

Next carefully pour the milk out into a separate container.

Pour butter solids into the colander in the sink full of cold water. MAKE SURE THE SINK IS FULL OF COLD WATER or you can end yup with a big greasy mess.


Now time to get your hands dirty, squish, squeeze, pull and mash any remaining milk out of the butter.

Empty sink refill with clean water.

Continue mashing, squishing and squeezing until water remains clear.

Put butter into a bowl if you’re flavouring. Roasted garlic and herb is super rad.

BAM! Not Yo’ Grannies Butta
