::reunion:: homemade butter

part of the Pioneer Day activities were making homemade butter! this amazed me beyond belief. i had no idea how simple it is. as i understand it, these are the steps:

  • add heavy cream to a little mason jar. shake, shake, shake, until it comes together in a clump.
  • pour into a bowl, and add water. swish around and pour out water, leaving butter clump behind. repeat until the water rinses out clear.
  • add a pinch of salt.
  • stir it up.

we all sampled the butter on some bread with jam and it was delicious! (correct me if any of that is wrong, barb)

i don't know why but i think mason jars are so cute. how long does it take to actually make the butter?

i totally agree. mmm, i think they had to shake it for maybe ten minutes? it wasn't long at all for the end product!
