Homemade Butter

DD123 0

"We have made this recipe a Thanksgiving Day tradition in our family since my son was in kindergarten. Open the container and -- voila! -- you have homemade butter. Pour off the buttermilk (or drink it if you like)and place the butter in a serving dish. Great on dinner rolls. The little ones will be proud to have helped prepare the meal."

I remember making this as a kid in my second grade class. It is so fun for kids. I remember adding salt like some of the others have said. Also, since it is so hard to shake it that long, here...

I'm actually amazed that this worked. I shook it for about 20 minutes, while my husband just stared at me as if I were strange ;) It tasted just like unsalted butter, now I know where to turn ...
