We made butter!

And I really can't belive how easy it was!  We have been reading through the Little House on the Prairie book series.  The kids are very interested on how they used to do things back then.  So I thought this was one thing that we could test out and see how it went.  Obviously we used a modern appliance instead of a hand butter churn(although I do have one just for display).
Heavy Whipping Cream (2 cups)

Turn on for roughly 5 minutes.  Starting to get thick.

J and K squeezing the buttermilk out.  The did not like
this as much as they thought they would.

Still squeezing!

And we have butter!  That is it!  If you like salty butter, add 1 tsp salt.
Also if you do not add yellow food coloring the butter will be white.

We had a lot of fun with it and the kids all asked to do it again!  Next time we will make homemade rolls to go with it!  Doesn't that sound amazingly yummy!
