We can get milk from the cafeteria. Before the students arrived, we also had the opportunity to get some cream from there as well. We heard that there was no butter or milk in the stores in Nairobi this weekend when friends were there shopping.
So, we decided to make some butter from the cream. We whipped it up with some beaters, filtered off the buttermilk, then washed out the buttermilk with ice water. A little salt to taste, and voila, we have butter!
We have been enjoying popping popcorn in the evenings when we have a little time to watch a movie together as a family. The butter really helps with that!
