Fresh homemade whipped cream is divine on any treat. I am usually unable to restrain myself from dipping my fingers in for a taste.
I can only imagine how delicious Great Grandma Hutchinson’s homemade whipped cream was. Living on a diary farm they had milk as fresh as it gets. The cows were grass fed animals and weren’t given hormones to make them develop faster. They were milked that morning and the cream was used to make many things… but the Whipped Cream must have been “udderly” delicious!
I wonder if she made strawberry shortcake and topped it with the best whipped cream known to man!
“There were 40 cows on one side [of the barn] and 40 cows on the other[…] each cow had their own stall and they always went to their own stall. […] It would take about four hours [to milk the cows]. I could milk about 10 cows an hour. After milking, the milk would go to the milk house and we would separate the milk in a cream separator.”
