Try as i might to blog more than once a week i seem to be falling into a habit of a weekly cram session. This week began with a whim to make homemade butter. I think that day it was snowing and we were looking for something interesting and fun to do. I broke out the jar and poured in the heavy cream, with just a pinch of salt and got to shaking. The kids helped. Not as much as i thought that they would like to but even while we did school Avery and I kept passing the jar. In about 20 minutes the butter came together and there it was. Very tasty too. My sister says you can add fresh herbs and shake those in as well or honey. Yumm huh? We drained the liquid that separates from the butter solids and then i pressed it all into my butter crock. And we have been enjoying it since. It has been especially nice on out Irish soda bread.
