Crowsonshire Butter

Since we have been milking Leslie every morning we have a ton of fresh milk! I decided to try making butter in a Mason jar today. It was super simple and took only about five minutes. Jason had put some cream in a jar earlier and all I did was shake it vigorously for about five minutes.

I wasn't entirely sure it would work, but as I was shaking it I could feel it starting to change. One second it was thick whipped cream and the next I could hear the swish of the buttermilk as it separated. I rinsed the new butter under the faucet and added a pinch of salt. It was super simple and yet, it kind of made me feel like a magician! I can't wait to make some homemade bread to go with it.
