  1. Interesting . . . I try to have an open mind when it comes to old recipes, but for the life if me I can’t figure out why it would be helpful to bury the cream before making butter. I assume that the cream sours during the 24 hrs. that it is buried, but it seems like it could just be left in a warm spot and that there would be no need to bury it.
