Well, What Do You Know?

After we stood in line in the third world country to buy our raw milk, I was curious to see if I could skim the cream and make butter.

It worked!

I put it in a Tupperware container used to mix protein shakes and shook it for all it was worth. I'm not sure how long it took, but my arms certainly got a workout! The end result was enough butter to put in my butter bell.

Now I know why the man who invented the butter churn, on a rocker, was popular. During the entire shaking process, I was trying to think of easier ways to make the butter. After all, I'm a modern woman living in modern times!

I also wonder what on earth families did with all that milk when they milked a cow daily.

I am so impressed with you! I bet I could find a "milk bootlegger" up here, as well :-).

Once upon a time I made butter by mistake... I was trying to whip my cream in the KitchenAid mixer and got distracted... and the next thing I knew... Butter! But no whipped cream :-(
