We’ve been studying pioneers lately! It has kept us very busy–but oh!–the free resources online are amazing!
Here’s what we’ve done so far and where I pulled them from:
And of course we are reading Little House on the Prairie!
The older kids had fun mashing the berries and straining them through a colander. We used a bowl to catch the juice and funneled it into baby food jars.
Once inside the jar we followed the directions in the link above and added the vinegar and salt. Make sure you do all of this on a surface you don’t want stained!!
The kids used cardstock and a salad utensil to write to pioneers they had learned about.
Next it was time to get the ‘littles’ involved!
Shaking the butter…shaking the butter….shaking the butter….10 minutes and DONE!
What was left after toast with fresh butter and honey. It was just soooo good.
