Making Butter

Making Butter
Young kids love trying to figure out "what happened" to the whipping cream!
Fill baby food jars half full of whipping cream and screw the lids on tightly. Let kids take turns shaking each jar.

After about 5 minuntes the cream will be whipped, and after another minute or so, lumps of yellow butter will form. Rinse off the liquid whey and add a little salt, if desired. Then spread on crackers to taste!
