Hello.

Hm.

Huh?

Look!

Ha-ha-ha.

Yeah!

Hmm.

Oh! Oh, oh, oh!

Ah. Huh?

Look!

Ah.

I'm Sally.

And I'm Possum.

Hello!

Hello, everyone.

Hi, everyone.

I really enjoyed sitting down

eating my breakfast with Possum.

Oh, I've enjoyed it too, Sally.

Oh. (SNIFFS)

Can you smell that?

I think the toast is ready.

Smells good.

Oh! Yeah.

There you go.

Thank you, Possum.

You're welcome.

Can you pass the butter, please?

Sure.

Great.

Possum, that's the last

of the butter.

Oh.

Oh. I know, I'll get some more

from the fridge.

I don't think I've got any left.

Huh?

Huh?

Oh, well.

There's no butter left,

it's all gone.

So there is none.

Oh, well.

Thank you for looking for me, though.

But I still don't have any butter

for my toast.

I could scrape some off

and give it to you.

That's very kind of you, Possum, but

I just don't think I'll eat it now.

I'll go get some more butter

from the shop later.

OK. Hmm.

Sally, it's a shame

that we can't grow butter

or that there isn't an animal

that could just give it to us.

I know, but it is very interesting

how butter is made.

It comes from something

you actually know a lot about.

You know about milk.

Oh, yes.

I remember watching children

visiting a farm.

The cows ate the grass,

they made the milk,

there are special machines

to get the milk from the cows.

But, Sally, why are you telling me

about milk?

I was asking about butter.

Well, butter comes from milk.

Huh?

Oh, that's amazing!

Well, it's no wonder there

are no flowers that grow butter.

Makes sense now.

Oh, Sally, later, can I go

to the shop and get the butter?

Huh?

(LAUGHS)

You are funny.

I could just imagine

you going into the shop.

Everybody would stop and stare

at a possum walking in

and picking up some butter.

They would get such a shock.

You are so funny.

Look, it doesn't matter.

I'll go to the shop later, OK?

Or we could always

make our own butter.

Huh?

How would we do that?

We don't have any cows

that we can milk.

But we do have some cream

in the fridge.

Cream?

Huh? What do we need cream for?

Can you get the cream, please?

Alright.

Right. Ah!

Sally, this is all runny,

not solid like butter.

Well, milk is amazing.

Huh? Sally, I know milk is amazing,

but this is cream, not milk.

I keep telling you,

milk is amazing because cream

is also made from milk.

(GASPS) Milk is amazing!

It can do so many things.

It so hard to remember them all.

I know, why don't we make a list?

OK.

Let's go.

This is a cow.

Right.

Cow.

Cows produce milk.

Ah.

Milk.

On top of the milk,

there is a layer of thicker stuff,

and that's actually the cream.

And you can remove that

from the milk.

Oh.

So, Sally, that means

the cow produces the milk

and you scoop the cream

from off the milk

and that is where cream comes from.

That's right, Possum.

Now, to make butter, you need to

separate the two parts of the cream.

Right.

There's butter...

OK.

..and there's buttermilk.

Oh.

Hmm.

Oh!

All these different things

come from milk.

Milk really is amazing.

Are you ready to make butter?

Oh, yes!

OK.

You put that on the table

and I'll grab a jar.

OK.

Right. Now can you pour the cream

into the jar?

OK.

Right.

Pop the lid on.

Hmm? Hmm.

Sally, it hasn't changed.

It's still cream.

It hasn't become butter yet.

No, it's not as easy as that.

We need to work hard now.

Work? What do you mean, work?

Well, you need to shake the jar

and keep shaking.

Ah, OK.

Hm.

It hasn't changed.

I said you have to work.

It isn't going to be an easy task.

You need to work hard

and shake it for quite a while.

Alright.

(GRUNTS)

Oh.

(HUMS)

(GRUNTS AND LAUGHS)

(HUMS)

Shake, shake, shake, shake, shake,

shake, shake, shake, shake.

Hmm. It's not ready yet.

It hasn't turned into butter.

You need to keep shaking it.

Why don't we go for a walk

in the garden

and while we do that,

you can keep shaking, OK?

Oh, OK.

Shake. Shake, shake, shake, shake,

shake, shake, shake.

(LAUGHS)

Shake, shake, shake, shake, shake.

Can you see any changes?

Hm, it's too thick.

I can't see inside.

Why don't you open it up

and have a look?

Ah.

Oh.

Oh!

Ah, that's not butter.

It's actually whipped cream.

Oh!

You need to shake it some more,

Possum.

Right.

While you're shaking that,

why don't we watch children

learning about cheese

and how that also comes from milk.

They are going to a very special

place to watch cheese being made.

Let's watch.

Yeah, let's watch.

That was fantastic.

Yes.

They took the milk and they made

all those different cheeses from it.

That's just amazing.

That's right, Possum.

They are so clever.

Yes, it truly is amazing, Possum.

Yeah, and it's just amazing to think

that butter

can be turned into cheese.

And we're turning milk into butter.

Yes. That's right, Possum.

Let's have a look.

Hmm.

Possum, do you think it's butter?

Let's have look.

Hang on.

Are we amazing people?

Yeah.

Let's see if the cream

has turned into butter.

OK.

Hm.

Hm.

Sally, let's have a look.

Right, now, cream...

There's this and that and, oh...

It hasn't separated yet.

You're right, Possum.

It hasn't separated.

We need to shake it some more, OK?

Yeah, more.

Let's go.

Are you ready?

Shake, shake, shake, shake, shake.

Yeah. (LAUGHS)

(GASPS)

Oh. Look!

Ah.

Look, it's the butter.

But what's all that liquid stuff?

That liquid stuff is the buttermilk.

Oh.

So the stuff that is solid

is the butter.

That's great.

Can you scoop out the butter?

Oh, yes.

Let me get a bowl for you.

OK.

I'm going to pour and

all the buttermilk will pour out.

Let's see.

Oh.

See, it separated now.

There's the buttermilk

and there is the butter in the jar.

Look, we've got butter.

Yes. Now I can butter my toast.

Great.

Oh.

Oh. Oh.

Look, Sally.

What have we got?

We've got milk, cream,

buttermilk, butter and cheese.

Good. Hang on, Possum.

Oh!

Look.

Cream. Oh, there it is.

What's that one?

Milk.

There.

What's that? Have a look.

Oh, butter.

Yes, that's right.

Hmm.

Oh, buttermilk.

That's right, Possum.

Great.

Oh. And cheese.

Yes!

That's great.

Good job, Possum.

Yeah.

Sally, just imagine,

that if I hadn't used all the butter

this morning,

we would never have had the chance

to learn about milk

and all the different things

that come from it.

That's very true, Possum.

Making butter was really good fun.

But it was hard work.

Oh, yes.

It's much easier to go to the shop

and buy it.

But it's been really worthwhile

making our own butter

because now we know where

it comes from and how it's made.

Yeah.

Well, our time is up.

Thanks for watching.

See you next time.

Bye.

Bye.

Sally, do you want more butter?

Ooh, yes, please.

Making butter?

Oops! That was the last of the butter, Possum. “It doesn’t grow on trees, does it?” Possum might amaze you when he learns about where butter comes from.
