Re: What to do with quart of buttermilk?

I buy buttermilk because we make our own ranch dressing, so when I need to use the rest up I usually make a batch of buttermilk pancakes or waffles and pop them into the freezer. We just throw them in the toaster for a quick breakfast on school days.

Re: What to do with quart of buttermilk?

Pancakes, biscuits, breads, I'm sure there are other desserts and baked goods that use buttermilk. I've also have a chicken dish that was good - chicken was marinated in buttermilk, then grilled on the BBQ.

Re: What to do with quart of buttermilk?

here is a quote from one of my favorite magazines:

"freezing buttermilk is a fine idea. The thawed liquid can be used as is for baked goods or in other recipes containing flour, such as waffles or pancakes, but it’s best to briefly whirl it in a blender before using it in salad dressing."

maybe you could make a bunch of batches of something and freeze the extra:

Re: What to do with quart of buttermilk?

A friend of mine from Germany makes something sort of like sour cream with buttermilk. She puts the buttermilk in a pan, then puts it in the oven with the heat barely on, and leaves it overnight. Then, in the morning, she puts it in a cheesecloth at hangs it to drain.

German's use this in cakes (like you would use sour cream), spread on bread with jam (more like a cream cheese idea), as 1/2 of a filling mixture in cakes with cream fillings, etc.
