Buttermilk

Tue Jul 16, 2013 10:55 pm

I've been making my own butter, which is leaving me with 300ml of buttermilk every week. I had to chuck some out today. Do you think I can use it like normal milk, in cups of tea etc..? Google is not helping because it keeps telling me about bought buttermilk which is sour apparently.

I have never made butter WACM but seen it done. I always thought the leftover buttermilk very watery? I think you can make it more like commercial buttermilk if you add a culture to it? Found a blog post.

You can basically use it for any baking or salad dressings.

Sorry I should have clarified. I've been using it for baking. Still can't use it up. C I wouldn't say it's watery. It's a bit like skim milk I guess. I suppose I should just try it lol.

You can freeze it for 3 months apparently. Just defrost in refrigerator and mix well once defrosted as it kind of separates.

How do you make your own butter? I'm no help with the buttermilk though sorry.

I answered in the thermomix post, but I whip the cream in the thermomix, drain off the buttermilk and rinse with cold water.

So buttermilk in tea tastes a bit like uht milk.....bearable I guess.

Yeah, I think I'd probably freeze it, or bake stuff and freeze it, rather than drink it in tea - but I'm only familiar with commercial buttermilk which is quite sour.

I'm going to marinate some chicken dummies in buttermilk before I crumb them.. Seen the recipe today.. No sure how much it uses though.

I would probably freeze it in smaller containers if. Could

I've frozen one lot, so we'll see how that goes.
