Firstly, make the cider salt. Combine the salt with the cider in a small frying pan and bring to a very gentle simmer. Continue to cook until all the liquid has evaporated and there is a cider-flavoured salt left in the pan. Remove and set aside until required

50g of sea salt
To make the butter, place the cream in the mixer and whisk until it splits from the milk, then pour everything into a piece of muslin set over a colander
2l Guernsey single cream
Allow the buttermilk to drain off, then tightly squeeze the muslin to make sure all of the milk has drained out
Spread the butter onto a sheet of parchment and sprinkle liberally with the cider salt. Roll the sheet of butter up into the rough shape of a Swiss roll, using the edge of the parchment to aid you. Once you have rolled the butter into a neat cylinder, leave in the fridge to firm up
