Buttermilk Party--Help!

Well, I did it again- I saw a great sale and went ovreboard-The problem is that I got a gallon of an item I have never used and now I have no idea what to do. I used 1/4c. in mashpotatoes and I froze 3/4 of a gallon bc I was lost. Was it wrong to freeze and what can I do with it? I would love to learn to make bread -Any recipes? (I only have self rising flour)

      Hi and thanks Kitchen Imp- Instead of water?

        There are a lot of recipes out there - I don't know if it would work to just swap it in place of water.

        Didn't think of that... :) thanks!

      2. If you have an ice cream maker, try this lemon-buttermilk sorbet:

        Buttermilk ice cream ( ) and strawberry-buttermilk ice cream ( ) are also wonderful.

        I also use buttermilk in all kinds of baked goods and salad dressings and to replace some of the milk in mac and cheese or scalloped potatoes. You can also use it as a replacement for mesophilic culture in cheese making (1/4 tsp culture = 2 tbsp buttermilk) -- I've made both ricotta and cream cheese using buttermilk as the culture.

          I am so glad I got on this board! I do not have an ice cream machine, but mac and cheese and s. potatoes sound divine. Thank You!!
