Make Homemade White butter in Mason Jar

Isn't the title of the recipe sounds interesting? It is interesting, I used to make  White Butter old fashion way but when I tried this way, it was more fun to make and quick also, fewer utensils to clean and done in 5 minutes. And above all, anyone can make this, give it to sugar high kids to shake the bottle and in no time their sugar will be down and you are done with butter too.

I made it regular unsalted butter. but you can add salt to it or even make it herb butter by adding fresh herbs or even honey or maple in it.

Just shake it for five minutes, add 2-3 ice cubes and shake it again and you are ready with your butter.

It can last in the fridge for 7-10 days but in my house, it never lasts more than 3 days, kids enjoy this with bread for breakfast, snacks and in between and ask for more.

Ingredient :

1 -  8 oz Mason Jar
1 half pint Heavy cream
2-3 ice cubes

Method :

Take a clean mason jar, add heavy cream to it. If you are using small jar then make sure jar is half full. it needs room to shake up.

Put the lid on it and start shaking. Shake for 5 minutes and you will see its now whipped cream. if you need fresh whipped cream, stop there and use it in a required recipe but you are in for butter then add 2-3 ice cubes and shakes again. After a few shakes, you will hear lump formed inside.

You will see then buttermilk and butter will separate.

Sieve the buttermilk thru a strainer and take the butter out. You can use buttermilk to knead the dough.

Make the ball and wash the water and put it in a glass container and start using it.


  1. Wow.. this is such a nice idea.. I guess any jar should work right? Or only mason jar?

  2. Hi Chitra, any glass jar with lid works. Do try it. Thanks
