    1. Add the heavy cream to the bowl of the KitchenAid® Pro Line® Series Food Processor. Process the butter for 2 minutes. The cream will go through three stages: soft peaks, then stiff peaks, and then finally the butter solids will separate from the buttermilk. Once you see the butter solids separate, stop the food processor and pour out the buttermilk. (The buttermilk can be reserved for other uses.)
    2. Transfer the butter to a fine mesh sieve set over a large bowl. Using a spatula, press the butter into the sieve to remove any excess buttermilk. (The less buttermilk that remains in the butter, the longer the butter will last.)
    3. Clean the KitchenAid® Food Processor bowl then return the butter to it. Add 1/4 cup ice-cold water to the bowl then process the butter again for 30 more seconds to “wash” the butter and get rid of any excess buttermilk.
