MAKING AND STORING OF
BUTTER FOR HOME USE.
(The following bulletin is given
out by the Home Demonstration De
partment, of which Mrs. George
Clowney is agent for this county.)
Many inquiries come to us about
the storing of butter during the
spring and summer. months for use
the folowing winter when it is not
so plentiful. There is a surplus of
milk and butter during the spring
and summer and the market price is
lower than at any other time, in fact,
it is often hard to find a market at all.
More often than not the farm home
milk supply is very low during the
winter months and the family is with
out a sufficient supply of butter. As
butter has high food value and is rici
in one of the growth promoting sub
stances of vitamines we now know
to be so important in the diet espe..

shoud be without a sufficient supply
for 'her family throughout the entire

found the stored product to be good.

can be used only in cooking. This is
due to the fact that they failed to
make butter of good keeping quali
ties. The method of making the
butter to be stored as outlined in a
bulletin issued by the Extension Ser
vice of Cornell University will in
sure a good product, one that will
have enough good keeping qualities
for successful storing.
This method is as follows: First,
The butter should be made from
perfectly sweet cream. A strong
flavor is likely to develop in the
stored butter made from sour cream.
Second, the cream should be pass..
eurized (that is heated to 148 de-.
rees Fahrenheit for thirty minutes,
if no thermometer ils available the
:rcam may be brought to the boiling
oint, andf in both cases cooled as
soon as possible). The pasteurizing
lls most of the bacteria and the
utter will keep much better. Then,
oo, it will make the cream much
ess difficult to churn, as sweet cream
s hard to churn otherwise.
In making the butter the method
sed should be the one described in

stage. These are three important
steps in buttermaking and ishould
