Making Butter

Have you ever thought about making your own butter? I hear people on FoodNetwork saying don't whip up your cream too much or you will make butter...I didn't realize that it would look like this...and that the liquid you extract from the cream is the buttermilk and the rest is the butter cool is this...easy enough to try I say!

I would love to try this and make a few compound butters from it...butter freezes really well and it would probably be really delicious! I will let u know when I do.
