- and again, making Mason jar butter in August 2012:
|Pour heavy whipping cream into Mason jars. Some people add marbles, but that isn't necessary.|
|Shake it like a Polaroid picture!|
Since we've made Mason jar butter so often, I now know that the whipped cream stage?
|Willow made whipped cream!|
We're listening to Story of the World just for fun, if you're wondering what the audio track is there. Did you also see the look on Willow's face as she intently watches her sister eat whipped cream? Cracks me up.
This batch didn't take as long as in previous years, but it was still well over half an hour before we had--
--butter! To really do this right, you should then squeeze it and rinse it to get out all the buttermilk, but we just plop that jar into the refrigerator and eat it up until it's gone.
Next time, my new experiment is going to consist of putting cinnamon and sugar in the jar with the cream. In that situation, I may be right there with the girls, peering into the half-shaken Mason jar, spoon in hand.
