Cultured butter is dead easy to make. This butter is distinctly different from sweet cream butter, with a denser texture and slightly tangy flavor. “Cultured” means that the cream is fermented into cream fraiche/sour cream before being churned.
Perfect for your St. Patrick's Day soda bread, slathered thickly on any baked good, or melted over vegetables or fresh pasta, cultured butter is a richly flavored treat. This recipe is a 2-for-1 since you get fresh buttermilk too!
Homemade butter is so easy and quick to make using a stand mixer or food processor. It is also superior to store-bought butter. Spread on toast or use for cooking and baking. One quart of cream results in 3/4 pound butter and 2 cups buttermilk.
