Dancing Butter

Have you ever made butter? Have you ever made dancing butter?  That's what we call it in our house anyways.  It is not a sophisticated butter making process like some out there - we don't worry about separating the curds or kneading in ice water.  We just want a little creamy goodness to spread on a fresh loaf of bread.

All it takes is some heavy cream, a plastic container with a tight-fitting lid, a little sea salt, some willing participants and a radio.

Pour the cream in the container.  Add a pinch of salt.  Snap on the lid.  Turn on the music and dance baby dance until your butter is made.  This is a great activity to do with young kids - young, active kids.  They love to dance and shake anyways and kids love to eat something they have helped create.  My daughter was so proud to show her daddy the Dancing Butter we made.

And yes, it was yummy on the loaf of warm bread.
