Check this out. Ella MacSweeney and the folks at GIY Ireland are having a big party and you can come! They are trying to get 100,000 people to make butter all at the same time! (Don't you just love the www?)
7 p.m. Irish time translates to 3 p.m. in Massachusetts and Julia and I are going to play along. Sounds like fun. Not sure how good it will stream on my "mobile broadband." Fingers crossed. I've made butter plenty of times but Julia hasn't. Luckily it is a half day of school and she will be home in plenty of time. Join us, won't you!
What you need to do is easy:
1. buy 2 pints of cream (buy direct from your local dairy farmer if you can)
2. get a whisk, a bowl and lots of cold water
3. prop up your computer in your kitchen & log on to www.giyireland.com at 7pm on Wednesday.
