How to Make Your Own Butter

Dairy Cow

2. Add Ingredients

If you have children, this is a fun science experiment they are sure to enjoy. It’s always such a joy to teach children the food chain allowing them to follow the trek from cow to kitchen. Use precautions if glass is chosen over plastic jars and simply discuss safety when handling glass. Make sure the jars are shaken just enough to whip the cream, but not enough that they can fly out of your hand. Add your heavy cream to the jar along with two glass marbles. Screw on the lid and begin shaking.
