For farm fresh butter,
whip heavy cream in your blender for a few minutes until it is thick.
Pour it into an old jar.
Then... "Shake it, baby, shake it! Shake it if you can,
and if you cannot shake it, then do the best you can.
Rhumba to the bottom, and rhumba to the top.
Then turn around and turn around until the music stops".
*it is best to share the shaking, one can get tired
Once it gets good and lumpy, strain out the buttermilk.
For the authentic farm experience,
save the buttermilk to make pancakes in the morning
(suffocating in homemade butter, of course).
This butter is so pretty. We washed it first and then
slathered it all over our beer bread.
Homemade butter is fun and delicious.
Totally worth the work
