Making sweet cream butter
[Return to Topics]

Can I make sweet cream butter in an old crock churn (the kind with the x shaped dash)? I've made it plenty of times in a mason jar, but the museum wants me to churn with my great-grandmas old crock. I've done it with clabbered cream, but it gives me the willies (leaving all that cream sitting out to sour) and frankly, I think the butter tastes sour. it an exercise in futility (as some have said) to try it in a 3 gallon churn, or has anyone had success with this?

Not a problem at all! I like in the evening just before sunset on the front porch and rock (after chores) with the churn and churn away watching the sunset. A little help with some ice if you have it will make it go much quicker. Once you get the hang of it woin't take long. I had rather make it that way, then your thru for a while. If you have enough cream doesn't take any longer to make 2 Gal. than it does to make a quart. Coaltrain

That's right.

I enjoy churning but I sho do enjoy the sweet butter with home made rolls fer Sunday dinner.

The other 6 days I love it with bisquits or cornbread.

I use either a crock churn or an lectric Gem Dandy

Oh thanks! The plan is to use 2 gallons of sweet cream, and make a pone or two of cornbread (in a dutch oven, on a fire), and maybe let any unsuspecting passerby have a go with the churn. Then sell the cornbread, butter, and cane syrup (courtesy of the Kiwanis across the street who will be squeezing and boiling)for $1 a hunk. It's good to know I can "set and rest and rock a spell" whilst churning and yacking up the city folk. Any and all advice is welcome...I can do this but need all the help I can get since the resident know-it-all passed away several months ago.

Ya want me to come down and show ya how?    Posted 10-03-2002 at 05:52:37       [Reply]  [No Email]
