Cover the bowl with plastic wrap. You'll need to use 2 pieces, one on each side. Be sure to make sure that the plastic wrap does not interfere with the beater and is firmly in place.

**DO NOT SKIP THIS STEP OR YOU WILL BE CLEANING UP A MESS WHEN THE BUTTER SEPARATES!!!**

In a few minutes, you will see the cream begin to look lumpy. Turn off the mixer. Gently push the plastic wrap aside and scrape down the sides of the bowl.

Replace the plastic wrap. Turn the mixer back on high speed.

All of the sudden the butter will completely separate from the buttermilk. Turn off the mixer. Carefully remove the plastic wrap because it will be soaked with buttermilk. Drain well. You may need to use you hands to squeeze out the remaining liquid.

Store in an air-tight container. If you want, you can mix a little table salt into the butter to bring out that wonderful butter flavor.

What you are left with is buttermilk. This is the real thing. Not the thick, cultured buttermilk that you buy in the store. This is the real thing. Don't throw it away! You can use it to make biscuits, cornbread, pancakes, waffles or even put it in your mashed potatoes.
