Teach Me Tuesday - Homemade Vanilla Butter

Homemade Vanilla Butter:







Add a pinch of salt and turn the beater. 






At this point, the little beater was beat....so I put the heavy cream into a mason jar and shook and shook...the whole process took 45 min.  What an arm work out!


It will separate into butter and butter milk.  I poured this into a strainer.  I will use the vanilla butter milk for a recipe later. 





This would be a great project for your kids.  When we first moved out here, I called my neighbor and asked if she could save me some cream so that the girls and I could make some butter.  They have Jersey cows.  We took it home and made butter in a mason jar just like this.   Easy and fun!

Blessings from Ringle, Wisconsin.
