As a kid growing up on a North Dakota farm we never had store bought butter, only homemade. This is the way I made it as a teenager. Be sure to wash the butter well to remove all the buttermilk. This can be frozen, we always froze some in the summer time, when we had an abundance of fresh cream, for use in the winter time.
Homemade butter is amazing. It is easy to make and so delicious. If you can find fresh heavy cream that is NOT ultra-pasteurized, you will have a better result in taste. If anyone lives near a Wegmans, they carry fresh cream.
This is one of those simple little extra touches that ups the wow factor at any table. It was fresh and delicious and couldn't be easier to make. Definitely heed the advice of using a towel over the mixer, though. I did not, and it was quite a mess. Blogged about it here: http://mmapron.com/2012/01/06/bagels-and-butter/
