Yesterday before we went outside I made butter - we had cream that had been waiting for about a week to be made into something. I LOVE our own butter, but I use the blender so it is very loud. A hand churn would be so much quieter, but I don't have an hour to do that!! So I put off the noisy job til I can't wait another day....
|on the left is some butter still in the blender & the left over buttermilk, right is what I've taken out so far. I push it up against the sides to get out the buttermilk, then rinse w/ cold water, squeeze again, salt, & pop into a little container.|
|Oh, yeah! Today we picked another big batch of blackberries, and came right in to make southern blackberry cobbler with Breyers vanilla ice cream! This was lunch!! Tweeters made the cobbler & Jam snuck the sugar & berries.|
|What a treat!|
|Ok, we also had corn on the cob from our garden, with lots of butter & salt ;0) Hey, see the chair Jam is sitting in?? I found that at a thrift store for $10 - one of those old Cosco tall children's chairs!|
