Butter is very easy to make and is a great project for kids. You need a quart mason jar that can be shaken. A pint of organic heavy cream. A pinch of salt. I like to add a tablespoon of maple syrup (some people like vanilla), but you can do without. Pour into the mason jar and put on the cover tight.
And shake some more.
If the kid gets tired temporarily put it in the fridge.
Then shake some more until you think you can't stand it any more.
Suddenly you have a jar of butter.
Eventually you will have a mixture of buttermilk and organic butter.
Pour off the buttermilk, put the jar in the fridge, and you have great butter for the holidays!
