Homemade Butter in a Jiffy

Our family is reading through the Little House on the Prairie series. It’s been fun to read the descriptions of how they made various foods (like butchering meat, maple desserts & churned butter of course).

When I noticed a friend pinning how to make homemade butter, I knew the kids and I would have to try it!

I used this link as a resource to whip up butter. (Pun intended)

The kids loved watching and it went very quickly and smoothly.

I didn’t salt it but probably would next time.

I used our Bosch mixer and it turned out fabulous!

I was also amazed at how yellow it was after pouring out the buttermilk.

Have you ever made butter?

Do you ever wish you could be on Little House on the Prairie farm for a couple days?

Ok, maybe that’s just me.
