    Buttermilk is a staple in a southern kitchen. I remember my Grandmother churning her own milk, removing the butter and then serving the buttermilk at lunch. My Grandfather loved it.
    Life is an adventure to those with the courage to explore.

    Whatever the calories are in that pie Nancy, it looks to be worth them!

    I don't like it to drink straight out of the carton, but I discovered by accident that I really like it to scramble eggs with! The 'accident' was that I bought a small carton of pre-scrambled eggs and liked the flavor so much that I read the ingredients and saw buttermilk. Who knew???
    There's a crack in everything. That's how the light gets in.

    Again, sounds like a great idea. This is the thing about cooking. The average person may have some great, mouth watering, suggestions. Thank you.

    Homemade Buttermilk English Muffin Recipe

    "Today, most Americans think of Thomas’ when English muffins are mentioned. Jane Austen acknowledges the muffin man in her novel Persuasion and of course there is the old English nursery rhyme, “Muffin Man” from the early 19th century".

    "Soft on the inside and crunchy on the outside, there is no contest when discussing the virtues of homemade English muffins compared to store-bought. With a subtle buttermilk flavor adding just the right amount of tang, as well as, the slow rising and fermenting process, this recipe makes for a rich tasting muffin with a lovely texture".

    I had the idea once to use some yeast in regular pancake batter. As I read up on it I discovered that the English already thought of it and claimed it made great pancakes. The yeast makes a big difference. I cannot remember what it was called.

    It gives them a tangy taste.



    Good with black pepper and a splash of chives. Some butter makes them even better.
    [Wait! Take out the butterfat to make buttermilk, then put it back as butter. ]
