Butter and Bread

I found lovely cream and milk that is as close to raw as can be in a store from Farmers' All Natural Creamery. Boy, is it tasty! It's from grass-fed cows, organic, non-homogenized, VAT pasteurized, no added hormones. The milk comes with cream on the top.

Needless to say, the milk and cream don't last all that long. Since the cream only came in a quart size (more than we can use in the ~5-6 days that it lasts), I decided to make butter with Little One. She found it mostly fun, although Dad and I did most of the shaking. It turned out great!

Next we made brown Irish soda bread. Quite easy to make and pretty good. My husband refused to taste it and commented on its density.

Fun projects to do with the Little One. She even chose to wear her apron - all on her own!

yum. I would love to try your soda bread.
I also should try making some butter with my home school children. I think they would like it.

Hi Therese. I should have posted the recipe in the original post. I will try to post soon. ...It turned out a bit heavier than I would like, and my husband made some interesting comments about rocks, etc. But it was fun to make!

Where in TX can you buy this?

Hi Anonymous. I found the cream at Natural Grocers (by Vitamin Cottage) in Richardson (Dallas suburb). They truck it in from Denver. It would be nice if it was more widely available. Very tasty!
