There is nothing quite like the taste of homemade butter – it is simply divine. This recipe will show you how to make your own in a matter of minutes.

When making your own homemade butter, do make sure you add salt, because if you don’t it won’t last long. Salt is not only a flavouring, but a preservative as well.


600ml cream and salt to taste


1. Simply pour the cream into a bowl, get out your electric beater and whisk until bits of butter appear and eventually form a big lump. It takes about five minutes on a medium speed.

2. Remove the lump of butter and put it in a bowl of cold water, squeezing gently to get any water out. Rinse under the tap.

3. Put into a serving bowl and stir in salt to taste.
