Finding a stray feather never looses it's appeal to me. Each one seems more beautiful than the last, in patterns that human hands can only immitate. This summer, I teamed up with an incredible carpenter to turn my feather intrigue into something useful ~ a cheese board that is just the right size to pack up in a picnic! The feather inspired pattern is handcrafted with Maple, Cherry, Walnut & Red Oak wood. I hope you will find the same joy that I have from the sight of these beautiful cheese boards.
You can purchase them in our first pop-up shop HERE. Happy Holidays everyone!

You will need:
- 1 pint of heavy cream
- sea salt
- mason jars with lids
Fill the jar half way with heavy cream and screw the lid tight. Shake the jar back and forth vigorously until it becomes thick like whipped cream (about 5-7 minutes). You can open the jar at that point and see the change of thickness. Next, close the lid and shake again (harder) until the whipped cream becomes firm. It will feel like a ball has formed in the jar, and the liquid (buttermilk!) will separate from the butter. At this point, open the jar and press the buttermillk out of the butter with a paddle or spoon. Run the butter under cold water and press again until the water is clear and no buttermilk can be pressed from it. Add the salt to taste and enjoy!
* One pint of heavy cream will yield about one cup of butter
