Hi Nancy, Are you looking to make cultured butter? For straight (uncultured butter) there's no additional ingredient required beyond the cream. But yes, a but of Bulgarian yogurt should work to culture cream for butter. Just be sure that it's fresh and you like the way it tastes. Sour cream, kefir, or creme fraiche should work as well. I hope this helps!
