Like Buttah!

With all the bread that's been baking in our house recently, it was only a matter of time before we decided to make our own butter! So today, Bennet and I went to the store and bought fresh cream and spent the afternoon in the kitchen. We even used the buttermilk for irish soda bread. After all, you really need something to slather all the butter on!

Mommy is using the food processor,

...but Bennet is going the shake-it-up route to creamy, buttery goodness!

We've got whipped cream!

At this point I started wondering if I did something wrong...

But all of a sudden, the processor started shaking and there was something clunky inside! It actually worked!

Drain off the buttermilk.

And Bennet's STILL shaking!

It's time to flavor the butter!

After all that hard work, a little taste of buttermilk sounds good!

I've made butter before. It goes bad faster than store bought. Tastes the same I think.
