The trouble with simple living is that, though it can be joyful, rich, and creative, it isn't simple. ~Doris Janzen Longacre

Makin real butter ....

One butter churn
1 ltr fresh cream
3 kids
Pour cream into butter churn
Sit said kids outside on a tarp (it was there to start with so had to do)

Show said kids how to operate churn, pass said churn around to each kid
Take a few pics, give said kids a toasty turkish bread with cheese, sundried tomatoes & salami for lunch with a glass of milk.

Soon said kids struggle to turn the handle due to it going thick and buttery

Miss Daisy joining in the party. great place to have a nap if only that kid would stop hugging me.
It's all done seperate and add a pinch of salt. Yum we have real butter.

  2. Best way to get butter I have ever seen...loved it. Trish
