shake and... make your own butter?


I came across this post over on Kinfolk, and i'm completely fascinated. Apparently with a small mason jar, cream, some salt, and a couple of marbles you can make butter. All you need to do is shake, shake, shake... I wonder how well it works?

  1. anything that equals butter in the end is worth a try, I say :)

  2. I did this with my preschool class. It takes a lot of shaking to form the butter. Needless to say the kids grew bored after a while and it was just the other teacher and myself doing all the shaking. However, the butter turned out well, so much richer than store bought.

  4. I've been doing this since I was a little girl - making it at Brownies and Girl Guides. It tastes incredible, too.
