Butter-making in Rang 1


1st class were busy making butter last week! We looked back to when people didn’t have electricity or electrical kitchen equipment. With great determination and hard work, we made butter by taking turns shaking the jar containing the cream. We then compared that method to the one where we used an electric hand mixer to whip the cream into butter. The results were not surprising – it was much quicker to make butter with the electric hand mixer! We came to the conclusion that electric tools like hand mixers are definitely very convenient and easy to use. Finally we got to taste our delicious homemade butter on some toast!
