need ideas for something yummy...
what else could i make with a half-carton of buttermilk other than irish soda bread, cornbread, or fried chicken?
thanks in advance!
The Joy of Cooking's 'basic rolled biscuits' recipe, buttermilk variation, produces fabulous results every time.
Mmmmm... hot biscuits.
Other thoughts -
-- Pancakes or waffle batter made with buttermilk = extra tasty
-- Use buttermilk instead of milk or cream when making mashed/creamed potatoes
and if you've got any leftover...add a little buttermilk to some heavy cream and let it sit out for a couple of days for some creme fraiche.
Puree in a blender with a bag of frozen blackberries, a little lemon juice and enough sugar to make it sweet enough (maybe 1/2 cup?), freeze in ice cream freezer.
You can also skip the blackberries.
A terrific soup:
lots of sliced onions
good quality chicken broth or stock
broccoli rabe, broccoli or combination
Saute onions in butter until quite soft - do not brown. Add broth, bring to boil, add vegs, reduce heat, simmer until quite soft. Puree in blender or with immersion blender. Add buttermilk - heat gently.
whenever i am faced with leftover buttermilk, i portion out into ziploc freezer bags, in 1-cup portions and freeze. i defrost them when i want to make pancakes - with that and frozen blueberries stashed away, a yummy breakfast or midnight snack is awaiting.
