Now that you’ve mastered homemade yogurt, why not try making your own butter?
I don’t usually refer you to other blogs for recipes, but there’s nothing I can add to Bryn’s awesome walkthrough of how to make homemade butter on Writes4Food.com. Do you read Bryn’s blog? You should.
Here in the Bay Area, you can get relatively locally sourced heavy cream at stores like Sprouts and select Raley’s locations (at Raley’s, you’ll find it in the organic dairy aisle).

This isn’t baking butter. This is the kind of butter that you spread on a warm buttermilk biscuit, or a piece of bread that’s still warm from the oven.

Adults (and normal kids) will love this butter.
