Left over Buttermilk
« on: August 18, 2011, 03:29:15 am »
Hi everyone

I've only had my TM a couple of weeks and today made my first batch of butter!  Now with the left over buttermilk that you use for further cooking, is that the buttermilk from the first batch, or is it the second lot with the cold water?

Thanks, Renae

Renae, I believe it is only from the first batch, ie before you add the cold water.

Remember that buttermilk, either the stuff you have after straining the butter the FIRST time, or buttermilk you buy in a store can be frozen and thawed when needed.

you can still use it once you have added the rinse water as well. I have used it to make bread just replacing the water in the recipe with the "diluted" buttermilk  ;) don't like waste in my house!!!

Good idea faffa, Butter milk can be used to replace milk in most recipes you make. I still have some in the freezer I must use.

I remember hearing/reading somewhere that buttermilk should always be used in muffins as it helped to make them lighter. I'm like faffa.
May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.

Today on Kerrie-anne's TV show, a guest cook did healthy fish and chips, with the fish coated in buttermilk, then polenta with paprika.  The fish was then baked in the oven, I think for 25 mins.

I have always combined both of the 'milks' strained from the butter and use it whenever buttermilk is asked for and it's fine. Having said that, i have only made the buttermilk bread or other breads.
