We filled a jelly jar half full of heavy whipping cream, put the lid on it, and started to shake. All little hands were on the project, naturally. We took turns shaking the jar for about 7 minutes. At that point it looked like we had whipped cream and then after about another 4-6 minutes of seriously vigorous jar shaking we had butter and something else in there. I don't know what the something else was but I'm thinking my extremely savvy mother-in-law could chime in at this point and tell me what that liquid is that separates from the butter and if I could use it to make something edible. Yes? Maybe?
It had to be played with a bit first before we were actually allowed to eat it, but that was completely understandable.
It was so good and easy. I can't believe I have never done that before. Easy. Fun. Useful. These are all really good things. I would like to give it another go this weekend, but I'm thinking maybe it needs some fresh bread or scones to go with it.
