Butter Ya'll !!!!

I saw this a few weeks ago and really wanted to try it. It is so easy and really fun for the kids. At first my 9 year old did NOT want to do this until He started seeing the cream change into butter and then He was amazed!

Shake your way to fresh butter and buttermilk.
Prep Time: 10 minutes


Heavy cream
A Jar with a lid ( we used baby food jars, it was perfect for lil hands)

1. Fill a jar halfway with heavy cream and screw the lid on tight.

2. Shake the jar up and down until the cream thickens and begins to stick together.

3. Then, open the jar, and pour any remaining liquid into another container; this is the buttermilk. Everything else is butter.

4. Knead the butter under cold running water for several minutes to work out any remaining buttermilk (otherwise the butter will spoil quickly).

5. Knead in salt, if desired.

6. Refrigerate.

I am going to try this the next time I go to Sam's & get some heavy whipping cream. It's cheaper there. It sounds interesting and I am curious as to how it taste.

Before I became a SAHM I was an activities director for kids, and we did this every year for summer camp. The kids LOVE it!
