I am always trying to find food that my kids will eat consistently. They are very hit or miss with things. One day they will clean something off their plates and the next day they won't touch it. Lately, I have a had a hard time getting to eat bread whether in a sandwich or as a piece of toast with breakfast. When I was grocery shopping the other day I noticed the cream in the dairy section and had the idea to get some and try my hand at making butter with kids. I have made butter in the past when I was teaching. My students always enjoyed the process and the results. I was hoping my kids would too. Don't forget to try our Pesto Butter recipe.
You will need:
- Jar or container with a tight fitting lid
- Heavy cream
- Salt (optional)
Making Butter with Kids
- 8 oz heavy cream
- salt to taste
- Pour 8 oz of cream into your container and add some salt if you like the taste of salted butter.
- Tightly close your container and shake. It will take about 7-10 minutes of shaking before the butter forms.
- Drain off the liquid that has separated from the butter and stir the butter.
