Making Butter!

I know everyone else has already done this--but it was a first for me. From 3 Ring Binder, I found out about this video from a weekly science experiment. He shows all you need to know.

I used some baby food jars and heavy cream (I only left it out 4 hours--I got impatient). I filled the jars about half full.

The shaking! Took a few minutes.

This is when we knew we had butter.

Drain out the butter milk (note to self: save for pancakes).

Then we put the butter in a dish, mixed it with a bit of salt, and ate it on pancakes!

The kids enjoyed making it (once).
