What to do with Buttermilk?
I have a container of Buttermilk leftover from some Thanksgiving baking. What can I make to use it up?
Chicken tenders marinated in buttermilk ans then deep-fried are delicious (if not particularly healthy.)
cornbread, biscuits, pancakes... all of which can (I think) be found in Bittman's How to Cook Everything---
Phillyjazz is right, buttermilk makes a super marinade for chicken (if you can stand any more poultry right after Thanksgiving!) ... here's a very nice oven-fried chicken recipe from Epicurious...recipe says to leave skin on but I always remove it and marinate it overnight, really is great without deep-fat frying, Spicy Oven-Fried Chicken link below:
I have an even better buttermilk pie recipe. This is always the first pie gone at Thanksgiving:
1 stick butter, softened
2 cups sugar
juice of 1 lemon
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 tablespoons flour
1 cup buttermilk
1 deep-dish pie crust, at least 9 inches
Beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time. Add lemon juice, vanilla, flour and buttermilk. (Note: mixture may curdle. Don't panic.) Pour into pie crust and dust with ground nutmeg. Bake at 425 degrees for 10 minutes, then reduce heat to 350 degrees and bake for 45 minutes. Cool completely and chill.
