Before trying this batch of butter, the last time that I had fresh homemade butter was in grade three when half of our class got to bake a loaf of bread and the other half got to shake a jar full of cream until it turned into butter. I was placed in the butter-making half and was pretty excited about it. Obviously we couldn't all shake the jar at the same time so we just passed it around and shook it until our tiny arms got tired.
In retrospect, the kids who got to make bread had the better deal.
I've been testing out a Cuisinart Elite Collection 12-Cup (3 L) Food Processor and I was super excited (like grade-three style excited) to discover via Pinterest that it's easy to turn cream into butter with it. *insert clapping of hands and squealing*
Maybe it has to do with my childhood obsession with pioneers and the Little House on the Prairies book series..
