Super Saturday School... "Let's Shake Up Some Butter!"

Shake your way to fresh butter and buttermilk ~ Prep Time: 10 minutes ~ Total Time: 10 minutes
  • Heavy cream or heavy whipping cream
  • A Jar with a lid (baby food jars work great for kids)
1. Fill a jar halfway with heavy cream and screw the lid on tight.
2. Shake the jar up and down until the cream thickens and begins to stick together.
3. Open the jar and pour any remaining liquid, this is actually buttermilk. Everything else is butter.
4. Fill jar with 3 tablespoons of cold clean water and shake the butter in cold water for a few minutes to work out any remaining buttermilk.
5. Sprinkle with a pinch salt, shake and enjoy.
6. Refrigerate any leftovers.
