Williams-Sonoma Sells An Empty Jar; Calls It A "Butter-Making Kit"
I'm not about to deny Williams-Sonoma their right to sell what's essentially an empty jar for $29.95. But there is something, I don't know, slightly disingenuous about calling it a "Butter-Making Kit", even if they include a pair of cute "hand-carved teak butter paddles", two porcelain butter crocks, herbs, fancy salt and instructions, the contents of which I imagine shouldn't be a mystery to anyone who's ever been to kindergarten.
But in case you happen to have an empty jar at home and would rather spend your money on something, I don't know, more useful, watch the following video on everything you need to know about how to make butter with said empty jar.
