Dolly LOVES butter but HATES cream, so I showed her how to make beautiful rich butter in 15 minutes with half a small pot of full cream and 2 marbles.
|Mmmmm - Who Ate The Butter!? Half Gone In A Flash.|
We placed 2 clean marbles in half a pot of cream (plastic pot). And then we shook vigorously, counting for fun and taking turns when our arms were tired.
The cream got whipped and then it changed colour and separated. We emptied the buttermilk out and shook again. Emptied more buttermilk and rinsed our butter with water. We spooned it into our smallest Pyrex bowl and gently folded in a little grinded rock salt. We then placed it in the fridge to harden.
We've had it on toast, we've had it on potato. It is delicious and a great way to use up cream purchased at bargain prices. Also it's a fun and fascinating activity for children.
Are you ready to make some butter just for fun? Go on have a go and spread it thick!!!
