Did you know?

Real cream is what naturally separates from and floats on top of the milk layer of freshly gathered milk.

This recipe is brought to you by:


Sprinkle salt into cream. Pour into glass jars. Leave some space to allow for shaking.

Shake jars 8 to 25 minutes depending on the size of the jar. The larger the jar, the more it will need to be shaken.

When it’s ready, the butter will have hardened and separated from the liquid (buttermilk). Strain the liquid out and rinse the butter in water. Keep the buttermilk to make savoury pancakes or other desserts.

Use commercial butter for cooking and save the homemade butter for spreading. Homemade butter also makes a great gift. The taste is unbeatable!

Another great activity to do with your kids!
