      Yes. We just strain the cream off our milk (we have a cow) put it in a jar, pass it around and in 10-20 minutes we have a half a pound to a pound of butter. We've also made it in a blender and our Bosch mixer. I think I prefer the jar to be honest.

      That's cool your teacher had you do it in school. We've heard of the baby food jar method too. I am still in awe that we get such nice butter just by shaking cream! ;)

      You would have to buy cream or heavy whipping cream if you wanted to try it yourself. Or find a local farm who sells raw milk, let it sit for 24-48 hours and skim off the cream. :)

      No, the cream you by does not have to sit. You can make it right away.

      The purpose of the raw milk sitting is give the cream time to rise to the top of the milk. The longer it sits the more likely you'll get all the cream.
