I decided to try my hand at butter making. I thought what a great experiment for the girls and I to do. I had table cream in the fridge. I quickly discovered that 18% table cream was not going to work. Off to the store we went, for the second time today. I picked up two containers of whipping cream, the heaviest cream I could buy. One of the containers was 50% off, so bonus!
All I needed was the whipping cream and my mixer. I did add a bit of salt, not much though.
See the final product? It is a lot harder than what I was expecting it to be. I think that it was cheaper to make it then to buy a pound of butter. A pound of butter here costs around $6.
The girls really enjoyed watching the change in the cream. Now they know how to make butter...at least one way of making it.
What adventures will tomorrow bring???????
