Ingredients
 2 cups heavy whipping cream
 Salt to taste (optional)

Fill a jar halfway with heavy cream (baby food jars work great for small batches; canning jars are great for larger batches).

2

Then, screw the lid on tight.

3

Shake the jar up and down until the cream thickens and forms a ball.

4

Continue shaking until liquid separates from the ball of butter.

5

Open the jar, and pour the liquid into another container; this is the buttermilk.
