    Add fresh herbs, lemon or lime zest, dried fruit or nuts to your homemade butter and complement whatever you serve it with. No additives, no preservatives and you have control over how much salt is added, what isn’t to love?

    So how does it all work, butter without the churn? Let the food processor or blender do the work.

    When cream is agitated, butter granules form and separate from the liquid, also known as buttermilk.

    Are you having your “aha” moment yet? Homemade Butter is then seasoned with salt and ready to go. Simple as that.

    I like to use cheese salt, but if you don’t have that on hand, use Kosher salt or fine sea salt. Or you can be like the fancy restaurants and just served unsalted butter with a coarse salt on the side.

    Use the leftover buttermilk to make Avocado Green Goddess Dressing, Jalapeno Cornbread Muffins or Berry Buttermilk Cake.

    Flavored Butter elevates any meal to the next level!

    I’d give you a list of recipes that use butter as recommendations… but that would be most of my recipes. I love butter. Real butter. Not margarine. But do check out my extensive list of compound butters.

    So get on the butter train and start “churning”!

    4. Remove from food processor or blender and fold in cheese salt by hand. Mix well or else you will get a mouth full of salt at some point. Add other flavors as well- fresh herbs, citrus zest, dried fruit bits or other spices.
