It has been so cold here that I do not want to do anything!!! The days are long so we have to fill them with something...it seemed like the perfect day to make butter!

The jars were filled with whipping cream. The girls then had to shake the jars...

Eventually, it forms a clump. We learned the smaller one clumped a lot quicker so we ended up pouring the larger container into a smaller jar as well. Then you drain the liquid which is buttermilk and use the butter. We saved the buttermilk to make donuts.

Yeah, it kind of looked a little gross but we spread it on the crackers and had some happy campers...

The girls both loved it...they can't wait to eat it and make more!
