I have a cup of buttermilk in my fridge, need recipes to use this up with, hate throwing away food...
Buttermilk is a great marinade for chicken especially with a little hot sauce thrown in ... it's also super in baked goods...Lindsay, if you put that word in the search function on this board, you will bring up some very good threads on how to use up buttermilk also.
And, here's a link to a pretty good recipe for Spicy Oven Fried Chicken that uses the buttermilk marinade--it's best with skinless bone-in chicken, IMO:
I just made a banana/chocolate cake from the King Arthur book that had buttermilk. Awesome cake.
I always marinate my soft-shell crabs in buttermilk for about an hour (chilled in frig) and it is the season.
lemon buttermilk sorbet (I usually add lime zest for color) on Epicurious-- it is amazing
balsamic-rosemary fried chicken-- I think this recipe is from Southern Living
