Butter Churn
Ullapool Museum

This butter churn would have been used in a rural Highland home.  

Throughout World War Two, the whole of the UK was subject to rationing. This made everyday commodities like butter hard to come by. Luckily, butter is very simple to make. Cream is added to the butter churn – the churning process separates the cream into buttermilk and butter. It can then be pressed into shape using butter pats, or even decorated with a stamp.
