Butter Churn From Washer (Nov, 1950)

Butter Churn From Washer
Here is a way of converting your washer into a butter churn in just a few minutes. Cut a triangular hole in the center of a sheet of plywood so that it fits tightly over the agitator of the machine. Then assemble four separate compartments on the plywood base, making them 2-1/2 x 3-7/8 x 7 in. to hold quart-size fruit jars. Fill the jars half full of cream to allow for expansion and fasten the lids tightly. Churn the cream by laying the jars in the compartments, as shown, and turning on the washer for the required length of time.
