Blog Guelph: Not the Ugly Duckling

Not the Ugly Duckling, originally uploaded by Molly Motmot.

I made butter this past weekend. It was goat butter, and I don't think I've made food any easier. I remember my mother making butter when I was a kid. We bought a litre of milk daily from a friend, and I was in charge of running down over the hill to get it. What my mother didn't know was, I was skimming off the top, lying in the long grass. Sigh. Ok, back to the butter. It seemed like forever that I would see her churning with a wooden paddle. Me, it took 10 minutes of shaking a mason jar of cream. I'm pretty sure my mother didn't toil for too long, but as a child everything takes forever.
If you do try making butter, I'm pretty sure you need to make no knead bread to put it on.

I also made pickled grapes. Someone on my facebook page said, pickled grapes = jam? This is different, and it is seriously good. It's pretty simple too.

We have a ton of gorgeous photography in the pools on flickr. I have to restrain myself and not take everything for my blog posts. Clicking on these photos will take you to the rest of the story in the photographer's stream.
