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 rica
in one of the growth promoting sub
stances of vitamines we now 'know
to be so important in the diet espe
cianlly of children , no housewife
shoud be without a sufficient supply
for her family throughout the entire
Many people do not make a habit of
storing buttr because they have not
found the stored product to be good.
[t usually has a very stong flavor and
:an be used only in cooking. This is
ue to the fact -that they failed to
make butter of good keeping quali
ties. The method of making the
utter to be stored as outlined in a
bulletin issued by the Extension Ser
vice of Cornell University will in
ure a good product, on that will
save enough good keeping qualities
or successful storing.
This method is as follows: First,
he butter should be made from
perfectly sweet cream. A strong
lavor is likely to develop in the
~tored butter made from sour cream.
second, the cream should be pass
eurized (that is heated to 148 de-.
rees Fahrenheit for thirty minutes,
f no thermometer is available the
:ream may be brought to the boiling
oint, and in both cases cooled as
oon as possible). The pasteurizing
:ills most of the bacteria and the
utter will keep much better. Then,
0, 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
irmers' Bulletin 876, Making But
er on the Farm, which will be fur
ished by the Superintendent of Doc.
