In India, clarified butter is called ghee. It is the most precious substance provided by the most sacred animal, the cow. Churning is the process of shaking up cream or whole milk to make butter, usually using a butter churn. Butter is made from cream that has been separated from whole milk and then cooled; fat droplets clump more easily when hard rather than soft. However, making good butter also depends upon other factors, such as the fat content of the cream and its acidity. Churning butter is to this day practiced in India and is the most simplest and purest form of deriving butter.
Cow milking can be a lot more fun than it looks! The cow is a sacred animal to the Vedic culture as she gives us milk which leads to the creation of many other essential foods. Thus, she nurtures our health and well-being. Come join us in milking a cow hands-on, an opportunity that you won’t find often! It is engaging, fun as the milk sometimes splatters here and there, and a memorable activity.
