Science experiment

In Science class, we were fortunate to do a special, unforgettable experiment. 
We made Goat butter!

For about ten days, Emilia removed the cream from her goat's milk and was able to give us all a jar containing some cream. 
We then had to shake, shake and shake the cream for about 10 minutes.
The shaking initiates physical change of the cream – it separates the cream into butter and a liquid that we all know as buttermilk. 

Once, the butter was formed, we separated the buttermilk and rinsed the butter with water.
We then added a little bit of salt and mmmmmm... tasted our homemade butter on a piece of bread. Simply delicious!
