Homemade butter

I made a little bit of butter. It's one of the simplest things to make, but also one of the most labor intensive.

I put 1 cup of heavy cream and a pinch of kosher salt in a plastic container that locks closed.

My 5 year old daughter and I took turns shaking it. It was a 5% : 95% split on the labor, but she tried her hardest.

It's amazing how it goes from liquid to foam and then, after what feels like days, suddenly it's a solid.
