Inside Old-Fashioned Butter

Featured Video Play Icon

Today’s video is a little different: it’s an inside look at a butter-making shop in France that uses traditional nineteenth-century methods to process the butter. Watching workers fold and shape 50 kilos of butter is mesmerizing, and it highlights the amorphous, pseudo-fluid nature of the butter. Yes, the butter holds its shape like a solid, but it’s a soft solid at best and certainly shows fluid-like qualities when force is applied. A word of warning: you might not want to watch this on an empty stomach! (Image and video credit: Art Insider; via Colossal)
