Welcome to what is is Wednesday. Sorry I missed last week, but my military kids where home! We had a great visit, and now I'm trying to get my life caught up. This week I have a Cream Separator. It was used to separate the milk from the cream, using a crank, the milk which is heavier would stay on the sides, while the cream which is lighter would drain out the center. Remember their is light cream and heavy cream also. Some for your coffee and some to be beaten for your pie. Before the separator was invented milk would be aloud to sit for the cream to float to the top. In the summer months the milk would sour. The separator would speed up the processes, so no more sour milk. Today I have turned it into a plant stand. I found this down the road at an estate sale, when Grandma (everyone called my neighbor Grandma) passed away, and her home was sold. I love my separator, and so glad I have found a home for it.
