Description : This cylindrical churn rests with its flat ends horizontal, and with its rounded surface on two wooden legs, curved to fit the shape of the cylinder. Each leg has two feet, one on either side of the churn. The churn has a handle on one of the flat ends of the cylinder, and around the handle, the name and locations of the manufacturer are stencilled. At the top of the churn is a lid, and attached to the lid is a large, spindle-shaped roller. The roller was not originally part of the churn, but was attached at a later date by a museum staff member.
Commentaires : Numerous companies throughout North America were making butter churns during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. This particular style of churn was popular during the first half of the twentieth century. Many families in outport Newfoundland kept a cow or two, perhaps sharing it with a neighbour, and thus butter churns were common items in the home.
Fonctions : This churn was used for making butter in a family home. Fresh milk was left to stand, allowing the cream to rise to the top. The cream was then skimmed off, and could be made into butter. The cream was placed in the churn, and the churn handle was turned. Turning the handle spun the dasher inside, agitating the cream. Eventually the butter would separate from the buttermilk, and clump together. The butter was then removed from the churn, and the buttermilk drained away. To prevent the butter from spoiling quickly, all buttermilk had to be removed. This was generally done by washing the butter numerous times in clean water. The roller attached to the top of this churn was originally a separate piece, and was used for rolling the butter after churning to remove any remaining buttermilk or water. Once all liquid was removed from the butter it was pressed into a tub. Five pound butter tubs were the size commonly used in Durrell.
