Testing a Lifehack: DIY Butter

In this video, I build up my arm muscles and make homemade butter! It’s surprisingly easy.

To make the butter, I used 1 cup of heavy whipping cream, a 1 pint jar, and 5 minutes of shaking. After a little more research, I found out that the purpose of the bowl of water was just to rinse the buttermilk from the butter so that it doesn’t go bad as quickly. If you prefer salted butter, you can add salt after rinsing the finished butter, or you can add herbs or press it into a mold. It will store in the refrigerator for about 2 weeks.
