We've been studying pioneers for the past couple of weeks, and today we made butter with Hannah, Emily, Caleb, and Aunt Candace!! I've never done this before... it was a lot easier than I expected.
Here's what we started with... I actually have a real churn, but we didn't want to make that much, so we just did some on a jar.
We each took turns shaking...
Hey! It's working!
Here it is!
The two that liked the buttermilk (which was not nearly as yucky as I thought it would be).
So, is it yummy?
We used my duck and bunny candy molds and pressed our butter like they did in colonial times (though I don't think they made ducks and bunnies).
So, guess what we had for lunch?
