Want to churn butter like in the old days? Or just want to decorate like you do?... Then, this blue stripe stoneware churn is perfect for you

These American-Made, hand-finished stoneware butter churns are the perfect rustic home and farm decoration. They are fully functional and extremely durable. 

After cows are milked, the milk is left to settle in a cool place so the cream rises to the top. By afternoon, the cream is skimmed off and put into the butter churn. Some would wait a few days to collect enough cream to be worth churning. A little fermentation ripens the cream. The stick or dasher is moved up and down in a stoneware churn with a lid. Agitating the cream produces butter by separating yellow fat from the buttermilk. The ceramic butter churn is the long way of making butter, so when you do it, make sure to sing a song (it’s a tradition). 

Butter making is a slow process that takes energy, but needs only simple equipment. While milk spoils quickly, making butter and cheese was a way for early humans to preserve food long-term. By the early 1800s, it was becoming less common in Europe for ordinary families to make their own butter. However, early in the 1900s of rural America, these low-tech butter churns were still well known. 

Each churn is fired at a high temperature for durability! Finished with Lead-Free, Food-Safe Glaze. Ready to use. Easy to clean. Will not retain the food’s flavors. Microwave safe. Oven safe. Dishwasher safe. High Quality!

    Received churn and wasn't broken. Lighter and thinner than I expected, but my grandmother's is thicker, but near 100 yrs old. Haven't used it yet, but expect it will perform well
