To Do: Make your Own Butter

Yes, I was a little bored last weekend. So along with roasting a chicken and making crepes, I also took on making butter from scratch. That sounds more impressive than it really is. All it takes is some heavy cream, a sealed jar and 20 minutes of shaking. It's a great arm workout.

I had no idea that you could make such a large amount of butter from one pint of whipping cream, it's almost two sticks. I may never eat whipped cream again...but the butter is tasty!
