Domestic Activities Week continues here at OPOD with this picture of a woman churning butter. The picture was taken in 1897. Love the little kitten trying to get anything that splashes up. Now for the question . . . have any of you churned butter before? I have never used a butter churn, but you can buy whole cream in the grocery store. If you get some and shake the carton real good butter will start forming. At first it is like little flakes of butter falling out of the cream, but as you continue to shake, it starts forming a glob. I never got beyond pulling the glob out and showing I had made butter. I am not sure what you do with the liquid you have left after turning the cream into butter.
