  1. Some churn with a dash. We have a churn at home. It is called a dash-churn. It is three and a half feet in height. The sides are round.
    There are various kinds of churns, namely, a dash-churn, a churn that you twist with a wheel. Our churn is thirty years old and it is as good as new.
    Butter is made twice a week in Summer and once a week in Winter.
    My mother, my father and myself churn at home in turn. It takes one hour to churn.
    When the butter is in big lumps the churning is finished. The hot water is put on for heating the milk to churn.
