you can make butter

Today, when my daughter saw I’d bought some heavy cream at the grocery, she asked if we could make butter.

So we did!  


We learned how to do it when she was in pre-school, and it’s super-easy!

Here’s how:

Pour some room-temperature heavy whipping cream into a small glass jar (like a baby food jar).  Screw the lid on tightly and shake.  Just shake and shake–about five minutes.  At first, you can hear the milk sloshing around, and then, suddenly, it’ll sound like there’s something in there.  And there is!  It’s butter!  


It’s so thrilling to actually make butter.  It feels like a miracle.

  3. This brought back memories of when I was a little girl and lived on a farm. We had cows and my mom would often make butter. I didn’t appreciate it at the time…I liked margarine…little did I know. I found you at Kelly Rae’s…you girls must have had a blast at your lovebomb group…it looked like so much fun!

  4. I’ll have to try this with mes petites. I think they would love it. Your butter picture is very pretty!

  5. Ohh, I’ll have to do this with my girl. She would love it!
