..... a cousin who's a count! How fun!

Rumford is the only brand baking powder we use because it has no aluminum.

I wonder how you are supposed to clean those... Looks like a toxin factory to me...

Thank you Pearl

I think the lid is big enough to reach in with hands and pull out the finished butter but I don't know how they are cleaned and what I read about the larger one is that it holds twenty gallons! that would be twenty gallons of cream, a lot of cows!

When my husband was coopering he made a traditional upright wooden churn, coopered so that it did not leak and it had the plunger type deal with cross pieces of wood.  They could be cleaned with hot cold water of course but being wood there would always be a certain amount of cream soaking into it that could not be removed I would think?  I've only done the shake in a jar method.

I should have checked with my guy...he says folks used cold water to clean the churn so the fats didn't coagulate and many times just kept the churn going all the time.  Most was soured cream butter...is that clabbored butter as opposed to sweet butter?

Maybe?  I couldn't give up on a butter churn...many, many types out there and I think this is it...

My first thought is it seems like a cider press topic...maybe in ethics?

I like china markers for many things instead of a sharpie.

The grease pencil, a wax writing tool also known as a wax pencil, china marker or chinagraph pencil (especially in the United Kingdom), is a writing implement made of hardened colored wax and is useful for marking on hard, glossy non-porous surfaces.


I use them for plant labels, packages and quite a lot in the kitchen.   The wax is a little hard to remove from glass or metal...not impossible though and I suspect it might stain plastic?  
I tried to find out what's in them and all I found was 'non toxic wax'.  I assume they are petroleum based, like crayons are? Something in their make up lets them adhere better than a wax crayon does.

It's a nematode (roundworm), so ivermectin will kill it.

I had to check out this drug https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3043740/

Discovered in the late-1970s, the pioneering drug ivermectin, a dihydro derivative of avermectin—originating solely from a single microorganism isolated at the Kitasato Intitute, Tokyo, Japan from Japanese soil

possibly a huge butter churn?  I think there would be some sign of milk or cream fat residue on the inside though?

All of the images of wooden crank washing machines I found did not have a horizontal barrel like shown above and only a few of the butter churns did...some looked as large as the one you've posted maybe.
...and then, I'm not absolutely sure these two images are of butter churns even though that's where they were listed? sometimes google is mistaken

But they open a small box.  Maybe there is a small-box-blocker stopping it from working?

Mine work on my pc in firefox but not on my dell tablet which is also firefox.

Could it be because my tablet is not windows 10?

EDIT...I forgot that my tablet is using internet explorer not firefox...maybe that browser is the problem?

file fox + mobile view = some buttons not working

Buttons include
- "vote" on apple poll
- "report" post button

Is this right?
Anything else?

back on my pc and was able to vote.

On my tablet I can't 'report' or use the 'vote' button.  I'll have to go over the buttons later when I'm back on it.  

This is all in regular view though...I never use the mobile view.
I'm using firefox on my tablet...that's probably it.  I still can't use 'report' and a few other buttons on it.

Regular view though.  I'll let you know when I'm on my pc later.

CORRECTION...my tablet is internet explorer not firefox
