Making Butter and Buttermilk

A few months ago I saw a short segment on tv about making butter and buttermilk out of whipping cream and tonight I was looking for something to do with the kiddos and we had heavy whipping cream in the fridge so I thought we would give it a try. After what seemed like a year of shaking here is what we came up with.

Before we poured the buttermilk off.

I think next time we are going to try the salted version, this turned out really good though. The kids were excited to see the process and have something fun come out of all their hard work. They are planning buttermilk pancakes for breakfast tomorrow!
