This reminds me that I cannot remember ever buying butter or bread or milk as a commodity . . everything is 'ready-made' !

@Ronnie 2¢: Ronnie Till a couple of years back I used to make butter at home. I collected the cream from the milk and bottled it and on the 6th or 8th dayy, I add some youghurt ( plain ) add a few cubes of ice and shake well for some 15 minutes and we get great butter !! Now we have reduced the quantity of milk and so the cream is also not that much as we have switched over to toned milk instaed of Full Cream Milk and so that's it !! Nothing tastes better than Home Made butter !! Aw!! The taste buds are rebelling !!
