Butter - the complicated recipe

Hey!  Did you ever make butter in your public school assembly when you lived growing up in the city and some farmer came to visit you to show you how easy it was?

Or that was just me.

Since I told you all about it, I want to tell you how to make your own.  It's like a science experiment and your kids will be all over it.

You need:
a jar with a lid
heavy whipping cream

1.  Pour heavy whipping cream into a jar (until it's about halfway full).
2.  Put the lid on.
3.  Shake, shake it, c'mon, c'mon, shake, shake it.  For like 15 minutes.  You'll know when you're done because you'll first make whipped cream and then after a few minutes of seemingly nothing, you'll feel a huge thunk and it will be butter - separated from buttermilk.
4.  Remove arms from body because they are tired.
5.  Pour out buttermilk.  Save it!  Use it in your pancakes!
6.  Dump out the lump of butter.  Some people rinse it with cold water to get it all perfect and buttermilk-free.
7.  Shape it into whatever you want (a rectangular prism or a lamb, whatever seems best.).
8.  Put it in the fridge for extra hardening.
9.  Eat it on everything you see.

Simple.  Refreshing.  Butter.
