The Middle Colonies were known as the Bread Colonies. Grains and cattle were raised in these colonies. You can enjoy bread with your own homemade butter.

Directions:  Allow cream to sit at room temperature for about an hour. Pour the cream into a glass jar. Shake the jar until the butter begins to form (about 25 minutes). Remove the solid butter and wash it under cold running water. Pack the butter in a dish.
