We read the book, Snipp, Snapp, Snurr and the Buttered Bread by Maj Lindman, which is an old fashioned Swedish book. It's sweet and simple. Then, we made butter by vigorously shaking up cream in a jar. It takes quite a bit of shaking. The kids really loved it and the butter tasted so much better than store bought butter. It has a much fresher and creamier taste. The kids really want to make butter again so I thought I might buy a little butter churn for them so they could do more of the work. Surprisingly, you can still buy butter churns but they are very dear. They cost over $100, so I think we'll be sticking with the jar method.
