Friday January 9 Making Butter - Many Pictures!

As part of our study of food as nutritionists, the students suggested that we should make and try different foods in our classroom.  This week we were learning more about dairy foods (and understanding the importance of calcium for our bodies), so we decided that we could make butter in the classroom!!!

This involved much upper arm strength as we were shaking heavy cream in a jar for almost 20 minutes...

Eventually the milk fats (solids) began to collect and out came butter and buttermilk!

And finally we came to the eating!  The students agreed...this butter was delicious! (the crackers were pretty good too!)

We hope you can try this at home!  Have a great weekend!
