Put milk in a clean glass container with a lid. Shake very hard and keep shaking. Eventually it will turn to butter.

Perhaps faster since there is more fat ....

Take some cream and whip the dickens out of it with a stand mixer or hand mixer.

You'll first make whipped cream, but keep on going. You'll eventually make butter.

Then after you get to the butter stage, you should rinse it to wash of any milk so it won't go rancid. Then knead it to get out all the pockets of liquid in the butter and rinse more.

Add salt if you like.

Isn't it more commonly and more easily done with cream, GB?

It can be done in a mixer as well. I once accidentally did it while helping my mother make whipped cream in her mixer. I've never actually made butter intentionally, though I've occasionally thought about it.

Wow, I'm slow. Just to let folks know, I didn't ignore all your responses, when I started my reply there was only the original post and GB's reply.

Yes, I am sure it is. I was just thinking back to the one time I did it in kindergarten
