View Full Version : Cheap Buttermilk, Now what?

I couldn't pass up the clearanced half gallon of buttermilk at the grocery yesterday. If it were you, what would you make with it?

I'm thinking: muffins, pancakes. I'm not good at making bisquits.

Its on my *to try* list, my boys never let the bananas last more than a few days for me to make it!

I'm pretty sure it can be used in cornbread also...

You can also freeze it, depending on how much you are dealing with. I put mine in ice cube trays and when they are frozen, pop them out and put them in a ziploc freezer bag. You can also freeze it in the half-gallon and gallon jugs, just make sure to break the seal and pour some out first to leave room for expansion. HTH, Julie

I have always used Buttermilk in making my cornbread.
You've made me hungry

I have several things I make that use buttermilk, including many of the following:
Biscuits (even drop biscuits if you aren't good at making them)
Fried Chicken (I soak the chicken pieces overnight in buttermilk and spices, then bread and fry-turns out great)
Muffins (Blueberry, chocolate chip, etc.)
Ranch dressing
French toast
Buttermilk Pie
