Making Butter-- Classroom Cooking
photo by evan.brown
- Ready In:
- Pour the whipping cream into a plastic pint-sized jar with a screw-top lid (a peanut butter or mayo jar both work well).and add a pinch of salt if desired. Screw on the the lid tight-- I usually reinforce with masking tape as a precaution.
- Take turn with the children and shake the jar. We usually pick a song to sing for each child's turn. This takes a while-- about 5 minutes or so.
- Drain the liquid from the butter. This is the buttermilk, and some of the children may want to try it (I offer **very small tastes** in paper cups). Add more salt, or honey, to taste if desired.
- Serve the butter at once on crackers or bread, or chill to serve later.

I am a preschool teacher in Florida, here since marrying my hubby in Sept of '04. I have a stepdaughter. No kiddos of our own unless you count those with fur :-) We have 2 cats and 2 dogs who think they are cats. We are inovoled with our church and with our local American Legion post, where I cook breakfast once a month for the community, so I am always looking for new and fun breakfast/brunch ideas.
