Today I made butter for the first time. I bought a pint of heavy cream and put it in a large glass jar and shook it until it turned to butter. I was so proud. I had bought an old time butter mold off e-bay and put the butter in there and placed in the refrigerator. But It wouldn't turn loose of the mold. I ran a thin knife around it and it finally came out but the pretty little stamp on the top was all messed up. I know there is a way to do this because my mama used to but I don't remember how she did it. Should I have done something special to the mold before I put the butter in? I felt so pioneery until my butter stuck. Darn!
