  • Buttermilk Basics

    Buttermilk is a great way to add flavor and nutrition to many dishes. It has a longer storage time than fresh milk, and is therefore a great ingredient to have in your refrigerator.

    Buttermilk was originally the fluid left behind after churning butter from milk. Today, you can find reduced-fat varieties and locally produced buttermilk that is thick and rich in flavor. Buttermilk retains the nutrients from the milk used to produce it and is a good source of calcium and protein.
