Making Butter

Who knew I could make my own butter so easily?  I didn't!!  I saw this on Pinterest and knew I had to give it a try!  Ever since I bought a individual ice cream maker, we've been making ice cream constantly, so I had cream on hand.  I simply pour it into a jar, closed the lid, and then shook it.  And then I handed it to my husband to shake since my arm was getting tired.  So I guess technically HE made butter, but I'm sure he won't mind me taking credit.  It was really delicious!  And since I had bought the organic cream on sale with a coupon, it was cheaper than store bought butter. :-)  Happy shaking!


  1. Thanks for the shout out! Gald you liked it : )

  2. I've done this with kids at a child care center I worked out, but entirely forgot about it. I think I better try this with Maddie, I bet she would enjoy shaking the jar. :)

    1. She probably would! I was surprised how quickly it came together too.
