In the old days farm women would put raw milk or cream into a wooden churn and move a wooden staff up and down into the cream. Eventually the churning would break down the milk fat. Continued churning produced solid butter clumps and liquid buttermilk. Hand churning was hard work and I imagine the women didn’t look any happier than the woman below.
In this post Manda of the Jolly Nest demonstrates how to make butter the modern way. As a bonus you also get a batch of buttermilk. She suggests getting organic cream for this recipe if you can. For salted butter: After the butter is made just add a little (1/4 teaspoon) Kosher salt or sea salt and mix into the butter. You can also add herbs or spices to make flavored butter.
