Butter Day 2

Since I'm only able to get a small amount of cream from Majesty's milk, I decided to freeze it until I had enough to do a proper batch of butter.
I thought two pints, plus the cream off yesterday's milk should do it.

It was still a little skimpy.  Next time I'll wait for three pints.  Any more than that would be too much for my mixer.

It made just a little over half a pound.  (Forgot to take a picture).

Making a year's supply of butter from a holstein/beef cross cow would be extremely over ambitious.

Majesty continues to improve her milk yield for us, as Queenie eats more and more grass.  It's just not very high in fat content.
