    I have a real complicated process...

    take a mason jar with lid. add to it about a cup or so of heavy whipping cream (the cream from the top of your milk if you have a dairy cow, goat, or such) add it to the jar. Shake jar for about 10 minutes, if you have kids give it to them to do. It will look like nothing is happening then suddenly you will hear it sound different. keep shaking, soon you will have a thumping sound. the butter is formed and you can strain out the liquid. what's left is butter. works best with cold, straight from the fridge cream.

    I saw a tutorial where someone used their mixer and some heavy cream and did it.
