    You won't be able to do it with milk, unless you can find non-homogenized milk so you could skim the cream off. But I can't think of a time I ever saw that in the regular store. I used to think you couldn't do it with regular store bought cream, but apparently you can make a "soft" butter with it. The problem is that it is "ultra pasteurized" - if you see something that doesn't say that, you are golden. But go ahead and give it a try with the ultra-pasteurized stuff and see how it works. I haven't done it but a friend of mine swears you can do it!

      Thanks for the info.

        I have made butter with heavy whipping cream. It isn't as tasty and you need to add just a hint of salt, but it's better than margarine any day. I make it to make herbed butter to freeze sometimes.

        It's very very hard to get unpasteurized milk. Illegal in a lot of states actually.
