    Just gave this a go, and I cannot believe how easy it was! If I can do it then anyone can all you have to do is shake, shake and shake it some more. I cannot tell you how satisfying it is when you think it's not doing anything and then you hear that moment that it all separates! It tastes lovely too, so creamy and better than any butter we've had, plus you know there's no nasty added ingredients. Thanks OP

    Used the whipping attachment of my food processor and it has got to be the creamiest tastiest butter i've ever had, just a shame it won't last as long as store bough. Buttermilk yummy too

    GRRRRR! I got some whoopsied cream and decided to make butter with it. I have done it quite a few times before and it was always great.
    However, I missed the stage where it turned into butter, but thought it wasn't quite done so kept whipping it.
    Erm, I have now ended up with what looks like thick cream again! Can I do anything with it? If I keep whipping it, will it separate again?
    If not, can I use it for anything?

    I have extra thick cream, can I use that? Should I water it down a bit first?

    Hi ragz,

    I'm pretty sure that I read somewhere that it doesn't work with cream that has been thickened. Do you know if your cream has been thickened?

    From what I can remember, the method involved a great deal of agitation and not a lot else.
