homemade butter

 make sure you have a good container with a tight lid:


add whipping cream:


 (however much you'd like to do at once)


start shaking:


after a few minutes, it will be a little thicker. 
almost like a whipped cream:


after a few more minutes it gets even thicker:


and after just a few more minutes you'll start to hear a sloshing.
it will feel almost like a ball is in your container bouncing about.
that means it's finished:


here's where a cheese cloth would come in handy.  
we didn't have one so i used a new panty hose.
it actually worked really well:


 drain the extra liquid. 



 we save ours for other things:


i tie our hose to the faucet to let drip a little longer:


and viola!
look at the beautiful consistancy:


i'm amazed at how easy this is to do!
the kids loved helping shake too,
especially when we did it to some music!!!
happy "churning"!
