All buttered up!
Is there anything more delicious than butter on fresh bread? The good news is that it’s easy to make your own—and your kids will love helping! You can sneak in a little science lesson, as well. Cream is the essential ingredient in butter, and it’s made up of water, some protein and fat globules. When you shake up the cream, it helps the fat escape from the globules and separate from the water, and—ta-da!—this fat is butter. So pick up some whipping cream from the store, pull out a jar from the cupboard, round up your family and get shakin’.
