 HOME MADE BUTTER 

Ingredients : Cold whipping cream.

Procedure

 *Place your 'cold' whipping cream in a stand mixer with the whisk attachment and whisk at medium to high speed. Your butter preparation will take about 10 minutes  and during this short time, your butter will pass through some stages

1. Whipping stage :  At this stage, your whipping cream will be creamed to a stiff peak.

2. Separation stage : Here, you need to pay close attention because the separation starts slowly and quickly escalates, pay attention and you will notice a separation as you are whisking with your mixer. You will see butter solidifying and butter milk also coming out.
Gather the solid butter and place in a bowl, then gather the buttermilk and store, you will need it later to make some cakes such as chocolate cakes, red velvet cakes.
Now back to the solid butter, take the solid butter and wash it under cold water or a running tap till the water is running clear. Don't be scared here, just place the  butter in your hands and rub it gently while washing in running water till water is clear.  Your butter will not dissolve, so don't worry about it dissolving.
If the butter is not properly washed, it will have a short shelf life. After washing, store in a tight container and put it in the fridge.

If you want to make unsalted butter, add a little salt.
