  1. Allow whipping cream to sit out for 30–45 minutes.
  2. Add whipping cream to FourSide jar and secure lid. Blend on Speed 2 for 15–20 seconds.
  3. Use spatula to move whipped cream toward center of jar, and then secure lid. Pulse for 2–3 seconds.
  4. Use spatula to push whipped cream toward center of jar and then pulse 10–12 times.
  5. Repeat process until buttermilk separates from butter curds.

Note: Using cold cream to make butter will require more time to churn and transform to butter.


For cilantro lime butter, add ¼ cup fresh cilantro leaves, 2 teaspoons lime zest, and ½ teaspoon sea salt toward end of pulsing process. For honey butter, add ⅓ cup honey and stir or pulse into butter.

    Just made two kinds of butter- garlic butter and maple honey butter….we’ll see how it comes together. The garlic butter held together but the honey butter was a bit runny so we’ll see if refrigeration helps.

    I would have liked a bit clearer instructions (I’m a HORRIBLE cook and can burn water) . Sounds silly – but I didn’t know if I needed to discard the buttermilk- guess we’ll find out when I go to eat some!

    Could I use the twister jar for this?

    Typically, you pour off the buttermilk. Also, the buttermilk needs to be washed off, otherwise the butter will quickly get rancid.

    Can I make a Vegan version of this? Can I use Soy Beans for the whipping cream? I love soy butter. Can I use a vegan whipping cream?

    Yes, you can use the Twister jar for butter. Use only 1 cup of whipping cream. Add whipping cream to Twister jar, and place lid on jar. Select Speed 2, and run full cycle. While blending, turn Twister lid counterclockwise. Select Speed 2 again and run full cycle or until liquid separates from solid butter ball. While blending, turn Twister lid counterclockwise.Strain liquid from butter ball. Place ball in airtight container, or wrap tightly in plastic. Butter will keep for 3 days in refrigerator.
