Homemade Butter Project
Mother Earth News magazine has an article in it this month about making homemade butter. It sounded so wonderfully domestic I bought the mag at the Wholefoods checkout stand and decided to try it out. Tonight I begin the butter making process. You'd think you'd need a churn...and a cow, but no, no my urban friends. Apparently homemade butter is so easy, kindergartners can do it. All it takes is raw milk, or heavy cream from the store that happens to have live cultures and a food processor or mason jar. Then shake, shake, shake till the mix breaks and starts to form into butter. You can even flavor the stuff yourself with rosemary or lemons. Yum!
