This is an activity that I really thought that Ava would be interested in - making our own butter. The method is super simple - pour a small amount of heavy cream into a small jar, screw on the lid, and shake the jar quickly for about 5 minutes. Ava was done after about 30 seconds (and 10 "is it butter yet, Mama?"s). Joel and I passed it back and forth and watched the butter form. I strained the buttermilk out (sooo different from the stuff you buy at the store!) for Ava to drink and spread some freshly churned butter onto some toast.
Homemade bread, homemade jam, homemade butter...does it get any better? I think not.
