    Ok.. Just had to tell SOMEONE! Part of our new year! Get goats, milk them, have too much milk, make cheese, still have too much milk, clean off cream, let milk clabber to feed to chickens, make butter from cream! Scream to the world that you made butter! Oh happy day! What will I do when the cow comes into her milk?!?! YIPPEE!!

    CHECK!

    Congratulations! What an accomplishment. My hubby purchased a churn for me in preparation of our butter making - but we still are waiting on the goats to arrive! [​IMG] Thank you for sharing your excitement!

    Hehe, I can see my husband's face now. "You're going where to eat butter and see chickens?" He'd probably call the guys with the white coats.​

    Quote:I put my cream in a quart jar and shook the HECK out of it, drained. Then added a touch of salt.



    Well, we have peafowl and cows to look at too... will that get him to forgive you for wanting to visit? LOL!!
