Let your kids make their own butter by shaking cream in a jar.
- 250ml (1 cup) Double (heavy/whipping) Cream
Fill a glass jar with the cream (1/4 - 1/2 full)
Place the lid on and shake vigorously.
Continue to shake until the cream thickens, remove lid and let your kids have a small taste!
Pop the lid back on and continue to shake until you hear liquid (buttermilk) sloshing around the jar.
Remove the butter milk, pop the lid back on and shake again to release any more butter milk.
Drain any more butter milk from the jar and then remove the butter.
Rince the butter under the water and then serve.
COOKING WITH KIDS TIP: Glass baby jars are perfect for little kids to hold and shake
OTHER METHODS: If you are looking to make larger quantities of butter, or would prefer not to have to do all the muscle work, then you can use a
Pour the cream into the jar/bowl of the chosen mixer and place on the lid (If using a stand mixer you will need a splatter guard). Turn on high and the cream will go through the same stages as it does when making it in a jar. It is ready when the cream has separated into buttermilk and butter.
STORAGE: Store butter in an airtight container or wrap it in parchment paper. Store in the refrigerator for up to one week.
