Butter making at Westview PDF Print E-mail



Thursday, Jan. 10, Westview residents had a great time churning butter. Lots of discussion of how they churned butter in their day and many wonderful memories were shared. Hot bread right from the oven was tasty with the delicious butter. The buttermilk was used to make chocolate cake for dinner the following day.  The butter churn belonged to Pat Schroeder and Wendell Carothers’ parents. Both remembered making butter with it. Pictured are Gerald Burge and Cliff Sexson taking their turn with the churn. Also pictured are Ruby Porter (center) and Marguerite Ott. (Courtesy photo)
