I made my own butter. I found out how here. It really is everything fresh butter should be. So sweet, so smooth, so creamy. I shook the mason jar of near-spoiled organic heavy cream while attempting to watch Elizabeth: The Golden Age (for about the 3rd time--I keep dozing off and missing the ending.) Craig's in Louisiana (we're attempting a long-distance relationship), so what a better time to try making my own butter. So easy, so good and pure. Today is catch-up-on-household-duties-and-bake-some bread-for-the-butter day. A little more commentary on the NY trip to come. Happy shakin'!
