For some unknown reason I had a couple of bottles of open cream in the fridge. Now why the first bottle wasn’t used up first, I have no idea but anyways, they both needed to be used up before they went off.
We half filled a container with cream and secured the lid tightly and off the boys went. They took turns (as did daddy and I) with shaking the bottle. They turned it upside down and shook a bit more then back the right way up. It took a little while, but we eventually heard a slosh sound.
We opened the container and found that the ‘butter’ was all in a lump and there was liquid (buttermilk) in the bottom of the container.
We strained the butter to get rid of the excess liquid and then had a sandwich using our newly made butter.
It tasted the same as normal butter which surprised the boys greatly. They thought it would be horrible.
