    There is nothing wrong with making butter!

    Beats cleaning any day.[​IMG]

    My in-laws were blown away when I showed them how to make butter the first time.

    SUPER EASY!

    One large jar w/lid

    one marble...

    cream

    put cream in clean jar...add marble..shake like crazy for long time...

    thats it! :)

    butter...then you strain it...the "
    milk" is buttermilk...
    then put the butter in a strainer..use ice cold water and rinse it..
    you need to get the remaining buttermilk out of the butter otherwise it'll spoil too fast...

    if you get the straining job good...it'll be good for about a wk..
