This post is not to convince you to drink raw milk. You can do the research for yourself and check it out. I'm just excited about the nutrients and benefits that come from raw milk and an unexpected bonding experience as Kenny and I made real butter from the cream. I skimmed the cream from the top and reused cleaned out peanut butter jars to shake, shake, shake. Kenny helped because it was the last 20 minutes of the Lakers-Suns game and he needed something to help with stress! Suns lost... if it weren't for that Kobe Bryant...
Anyway, he had never done this little "experiment" in elementary school and was skeptical that the cream would indeed, turn into butter. 20 minutes later- we had it! I do feel industrious and I'm sure the Feminist Kitchen will be smiling about that.
- Cream from fresh milk
- 2 ice cubes
- salt to taste (I put about 1/4 teaspoon)
- Fill a jar about 1/2 full of the cream and shake for 15-30 minutes.
- Strain butter from milk and use a spatula to fold ice cubes and salt in a bowl for a few minutes.
- Refrigerate in a closed container.
