    Default Buttermilk mileage

    Don't know about the rest of you, but I usually end up tossing the leftover
    buttermilk once I've used it for a particular recipe.

    This time its principal use was for fried chicken, so I used some for spoon
    bread to go with it and the rest for pancakes the next morning.
    For me, that's a lot of mileage out of a quart of the stuff!

    BTW, does anyone really DRINK it?

    I buy the Sego powdered buttermilk. It works really well in recipes like
    batter breads and biscuits. No tossing the leftovers.

    My husband used to drink it, although he always complained it wasn't
    "real"; i.e., it was cultured rather than left over from churning
    butter. Also, he was raised in the country and loved cornbread made
    with buttermilk.

    The dear aulde dad did. He also used to stuff left over cornbread in a
    glass of buttermilk and actually called it "spoon bread." :-)

    And I've used buttermilk well past its "sell by" date with no ill
    effect. If it passes the eyeball and sniff tests, I'll still use it.

    I often buy just a cup (half pint) because that's what I need for my
    weekend pancake recipe.

    I do, and I love it when I'm in the mood for it. I also add it to salad
    dressings, use it wherever sour cream would be called for, or stir it
    into cold soups.

    I watched my husband put cornbread into buttermilk many a time. I
    agree - buttermilk is OK long past the sell date.

    Buttermilk is the ONLY type of milk I will drink. I can't stand the taste
    of regular milk, regardless if it's full fat, 2%, or skim. Having said
    that, I don't really drink buttermilk all that often; only when I've bought
    if for some other purpose, then I drink the rest.

    I do much the same, buttermilk is basically spoiled milk anyway, it just
    gets more sour. I have kept a half-gallon jug in the fridge for months
    and just kept using it until it was gone. It never smelled bad but I
    don't know how it tasted as I don't care for buttermilk, just cook with it.

    Add that baking soda to it and watch your cornbread puff up when the
    acidic buttermilk turns to gas.

    Use some for reconstituting canned condensed tomato soup instead of
    water or milk. Some people call this Tomato Bisque but I just call it
    tasty. Tip: this curdles easily, so don't let it boil on the stove top.
    Better yet, heat to serving temperature in a microwave. Also, don't add
    anything acidic, like lemon juice. This will cause it to curdle too. BTDT

    I love to drink buttermilk. It's just not a good choice for a thirst
    quencher. If I were in the mood for tomato juice, the same urge for a
    "savory" drink would be satisfied with Buttermilk.

    Felice - I forgot to mention that if you needed buttermilk for a recipe,
    and don't want to buy it. Just add a Tbs of vinegar or lemon juice to
    one cup milk, let sit for at least 5 minutes.

    Thanks! I always thought that canned tomato soup was yuck. But this
    sounds like one of those flavor combos that might work.

    I've kept it for months in the fridge, too, George. It makes the BEST
    cornbread!

    I do. Modern commercial buttermilk is produced on the same lines as
    yoghurt or kefir and is not unlike a thin version of either. Served
    chilled (which is the default, since it ought to be refrigerated), it is
    very refreshing.

    I'd rather have kumys, though, even if only the faux version made with
    cow milk. It is much more intensive tasting than any other fermented
    milk product.

    Not the grocery store stuff, but I remember stopping at the state
    college creamery (which was run by the Ag. department) where we got
    ice cream cones and absolutely delicious buttermilk. It's the only
    buttermilk I remember enjoying drinking.

    When I get buttermilk I tend to use it for pancakes and scones. One of
    these days I should try it for fried chicken.

    Powdered is certainly the way to go! It keeps practically forever
    too.

    No, I've never drunk it. I bet it would freeze well. If you
    are just using it in a recipe, the thawed texture shouldn't matter.

    I never drink it, using it primarily for cooking. When I have buttermilk in
    surplus of current need, I freeze it in half-cup portions (I use old
    single-serve Jello molds). It does separate when defrosted; but, that
    doesn't adversely effect its use in cooking.
