Thanks so much for sharing that! I know my maternal grandmother used to talk about helping her mother make butter and I am sure they took all the time and care as this.

Thanks for posting that video I really enjoyed it!

The idea of using the scallop shell as a salt scoop was kind of neat and certainly fitting.

Below is a picture of the high tech churn we used when I was a kid.

Making butter is a good winter day project for kids. You can use whipping cream and an electric mixer to make a small amount on a day when you are making some biscuits or bread. Kind of a little house on the prairie afternoon!

Great clip, cheers
All I really need is love, but a little chocolate now and then doesn't hurt

Finally, a job my 7 quart KA can handle; too bad heavy cream is going for ~$6 per quart.

Such a wonderful clip! A great way to start the day. When I worked in preschool several years ago we made butter every thanksgiving. We put cream in baby-food jars and let the kids shake and roll until the butter was made.
No matter where I serve my guests, it seems they like my kitchen best!

I am not even going to tell you how much it is for kosher kind.

You are what you eat.
