Homemade Raw Grassfed Butter

I had bought a quart of raw grassfed cream for Thanksgiving and I didn't use it fast enough so it started to sour. I googled what to do with the cream once it sours and people said the butter you make with it tastes great. I put about 8-10 ounces of cream into my stand mixer and mixed away. After about 5 minutes, the cream started to turn yellow and I got excited! It finally turned into a large clump of butter. I poured the liquid (buttermilk) from the bowl into a canning jar and I rinsed the butter until the liquid was clear. Then I added himalayan salt, mixed it in, and poured it into a dish.

We have been wanting to get a cow or goat for dairy. I have wanted a goat and my husband wants a cow. After making my own raw butter, I am leaning more towards a cow because the cream separates naturally and I can make so many things with it.

  1. What a great idea! I would hate to see good quality raw cream go to waste and it looks like you found the perfect solution! I'm going to have to remember this and try it next time I have the ingredients.
