2 Pints of cream yielded me 1 lb of butter. For about 5.00 total cost (and if you can find regular heavy cream, not organic on reduced it'd be cheaper yet!) I thought that was pretty awesome for home made butter :).
I just used my kitchen scale, made the butter into 4 oz packages (since butter weighs the same by weight as by volume) to make "sticks" and then sort of jammed it into a block like shape in some wax paper and then I froze the now wrapped sticks stacked in a Gladware container (can never be too safe from freezer funk). So now I have home made butter to go with special occasions. Booyah!
So, go HERE where Over the Hill and on a Roll shows you how to make butter in under 5 minutes.
