Recipe given to me by my granny from Mayo
My granny would collect the milk from my grandad’s cows. Granny would put the milk into a separator to separate the cream from the milk. Another name for a separator is a churn. Churning is hard work and tiring as it takes almost half an hour.
The butter comes together into creamy clumps and the milk is drained away. The clumps are removed and washed several times. Salt is added to preserve it.
Granny and I have fun shaping the butter into blocks with two wooden paddles and then put in the fridge. Granny’s butter is amazing. ♥
