So where does your butter come from? The girl in the blue bonnet or the kneeling Indian lady? Maybe even better, a store brand label. It’s interesting the amount of concern that goes into the production of cheeses and milk in society but no one takes into consideration the base from which that delicious creamy butter is created.
So fyi if you have the desire and the stamina you can buy heavy whipping cream and make your own butter. All you’ll need is a whisk, bowl, salt and some cheese cloth. Like I said the hardest thing to come by is the forearm power. If you have a kitchen aid than this will be very easy on you.
Begin to whisk your heavy cream, I use a whole quart. Go at it while keeping a steady pace. For those of you with a
kitchen aid turn it on….slackers. you want to beat the cream till it gets stiff peaks. This will take some time. This is the point where you add powdered sugar and good vanilla to make some great whipped cream.
For butter, however, you must press on. For you weaklings turn the kitchen aid on again. For the rest of us you have to go even further beyond. Arms will be tired but your almost there. Whip until the mixture begins to seperate. You will see liquid leech out away from the solids.
Place this mass into some cheese cloth in a colander with a bowl underneath to catch the liquid that drips off. This is buttermilk. Great in the biscuits and flapjacks.
I allow about a half hour for the buttermilk to seep out. Then turn the butter mass out onto a cutting board. Rinse it with a little ice water and knead it together in a single mass, no more than 2 minutes.
From there you can store it however you wish. Or you can flavor it with things like garlic and herbs or pureed apples and cinnamon. I wrap it in wax paper and it lasts for two weeks. I don’t know when it spoils as it never lasts.
Give butter a try. It’s a skill. It’s another way to eliminate reliance on the large scale farming factories that we all think we need in this country. Also if you have never had fresh butter you owe it to yourself.
When I open the mailbox to my podcast, I AM Liberty, there is never a single topic that resounds greater than ‘I wanna start to prepare but I gots no monies.’ With a bit of light research and self control you can really use these next few.days, black Friday, local biz Saturday and cyber Monday, to get started.
Of course the first step is your decision making. Do you have it to forgo the new superman DVD or the latest consoles? Do you need more stuff in your life? Your family will ,most likely, be shopping at some point this weekend. Now is the time to direct them on your wish list. No one knows what to get you and your probably the tough one to shop for. Make it easy by putting together your preparedness wishlist together for them.
Silverdoctors.com is offering free shipping and low prices on black friday. In some cases you can get as low as .99 cents over spot. My favorite shop, Silvertowne, is offering free shipping till November 30th. Tell your aunt you like the pretty pictures on the coins, that’s all.
Emergency Essentials is offering great deals all weekend long as well as great deals on food, bulk storage and even solar power deals. Some preparedness sights might be strange spots for your relatives to venture but for the most part they aren’t think that deep into it. Your a name on a list and the goal is to cross it off.
Finally, buy a newspaper. There are tons of deals at retailers across the nation that could really help you out. Don’t bother with the Best Buy catalog. I found a 2000 watt generator from a tractor supply company. At Dick’s sporting goods all ammo is 25% of on Friday! Guns are cheap everywhere and available! Kids rifles for $100! Wondering how to get little Jimmy on your side of the preparedness fence? Get him his very own S&W and teach him how to use it.
Dont forget canned goods at grocery stores!
If you must spend some money on entertainment be sure to buy my new book THE MEN WHO BUILT THE END available right next to this article. $5.00 on Kindle and $8 for a hard copy with the beautiful artwork on the cover. Yes. Absolutely shameless plug and while I’m at it dont miss I AM Liberty on the prepper podcast radio network and live every Friday on http://www.prepperbroadcasting.com
Bottom line, you can use the holidays to your advantage. Forget about the PS4 if your strapped use this opportunity to either lay a base or bolster your plan. It’s really up to how comfortable you are with asking for some “strange” gifts and putting to rest the desire for less than useful, shiny things.

It’s all about water. Let’s be honest many of us don’t put as much time into our water preparedness as we should. Tonight on I Am Liberty we will have Mike Wofsey on the show to talk all about just that. A very impressive man he will bring incredible scientific insight into our quest for clean water.
Mike has held senior positions with McGraw Hill and Unidigital,a founded Scientific Illustration Services, a manufacturer of high precision measuring and color calibration tools. He received his bachelors and masters degrees in physics from City University of New York, and his Ph.D. in physics from The University of Alabama. He continues research in solar desalination and ion polarization. Mike has written for Physical Review Focus, The Wall Street Journal and Australian Provincial Newspapers.
He is part of the team who developed the SEA Panel. The SEA Panel was invented to solve water problems in Developing Nations. It is a robust, low-maintenance method of producing potable, irrigable water from any contaminated or saline source. Through a Phase 1 P3 Sustainability Grant from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, SEA Desalination has created several world field test sites. In addition, SEA Panel has deeply discounted product available for deployment in Developing Nations.
Be sure to check out the SEA Panel at the website www.seapanel.com. It is a great product that is lightweight easy to carry and boasts some serious ability:
“Drink PURE water from any contaminated source. Remove what filters can’t, like salt, fluoride, agricultural runoff, even radioactive isotopes. U.S. Patent Pending, to never need replacement filters, or chemicals.”
