In the afternoon we have been reading a chapter aloud from Little House in the Big Woods.
When we read the part when Ma list her weekly chore of "Churn on Thursday" Megan asked what that was. We talked about it and I knew that we needed to try making butter.
Pouring a cup of heavy whipping cream into a jar.
Then it was time to shake,
and shake some more.
The buttermilk and butter were separated.
One happy girl with her jar of butter.
It is currently chilling in the refrigerator. Waiting for the homemade buttermilk biscuits that will be served with tonight's dinner.
Chuck joked and said that now we won't have to buy butter. I don't know about that. I would need to do a cost and time analysis to consider that. Seriously, it you haven't tried making butter you should at least do it once.
I am trying a new recipe for biscuits and will let you know it I finally master them. :)
I hope you are taking time to enjoy the simple moments!
