- 2 cups heavy cream
- 1/4 teaspoon salt (optional).
- Pour cream into a food processor or blender (I used my hand-held mixer...didn't work in my blender).
- Process/mix for 10 minutes, or until the butter separates. Strain off the liquid; season to taste with salt (optional).
- Press butter into a small bowl with the back of a spoon to further remove liquid.
