If you want to do a project with your child to make a gift for their grandmother or other relatives or their class at school, this would be a great bonding experience. I’ve had a lot of fun lately making butter from whipping cream. I use Snowville’s Whipping Cream from grassfed cows because I like the way they do things. Then I take the butter and use it to make Shortbread Cookies. I did it with a food processor which can make it safe and quick to work with their attention span.
Let the cream sit at room temperature until it comes up to around 55 deg Celsius.
Pour into the food processor up to the liquid line and let ‘er rip.
The cream will become thicker and thicker turning into whipped cream, keep going.
It will be thicker and then start to separate into buttermilk and butter – it’s amazing, but pretty cool.
The food processor will rock a little as the butter sticks to the blade and separates from the buttermilk….
