We have been reading quite a few of the Little House books by Laura Ingalls Wilder and this led us to making our own butter. We have also been studying a Southern African tribe of people who used to exist along the Cape coastline of South Africa called the Khoikhoi, they would also make their own butter by rolling cream in a calabash from side to side.
We used a jam jar, poured some cream into it and also put a small marble into the jar (this acts like a little mixer while you shake the jar, don’t forget to remove it when your butter is made, we used a hard plastic marble because I was concerned a glass marble would crack the jar). If your prefer salted butter, now would be a good time to add some salt or just leave it unsalted. Make sure that your lid is on tight, or you could have cream fiasco!
