Great Stuff

I re-cultured the last packet in my order, and it worked fine. Then we lost power for 36 hours and all my precious culture cubes melted ! Still cold, so I inoculated some homo milk . In 12 hours it separated into whey and a very firm curd. Made a tangy cottage cheese, so good I made a few more batches before tossing the poor old bugs.

A Persian friend suggested mixing buttermilk with cardamon and mint, it's great! I'm ordering more today, and some kefir culture , too.

I make my own buttermilk from 3% cow milk UHP- this starter works slowly, but gives a wonderful thick tangy cultured milk product!

I add ussually(for 1 lt of milk ) - 2 tbsp of dry low-fat milk, 1 tsp of inulin, and in last batch i added 2 tsp of honey (something 30 minuts before thickening - when milk is still liquid).

Thank you!

It Works!

I was given this packet by Tess Schaffner from Off The Vine Market here in Williamsburg. We used milk from Trickling Springs Creamery purchased at the market and frankly were a bit skeptical if this would work. After following the instructions and waiting the 24 hour period, my mother and grandmother and I found the glass jar of milk and transformed into actual buttermilk. We used Creamline Milk and we think because of this, it gave the milk it's nice thick appearance. My grandmother said it tastes like the buttermilk of her childhood.

This culture makes a great butter milk. My wife is very fond of butter milk especially with a little salt. Ever since I started making the b.m. she'll drink it again!

So much fun using the buttermilk!!!

So I ended up with a gallon of organic pasteurized milk and some of these packets of culture. I do not like buttermilk to drink, or milk. But I made 4 liters of this. It was beautiful and really thick. With my buttermilk this weekend, I made 1. The world's best biscuits, 2. UNBElievable pancakes, 3. Cool buttermilk blue cheese dressing for my salad, 4. Cornbread, 5. Two pints of crazy good buttermilk sour cream. And I still have 2 liters of this stuff to play with. I have it in old fashioned jars with glass and rubber tops. It's pretty and I'm happy to say that I am loving this way of making buttermilk. It's not like anything I've ever had and it elevates each of the things I've made in my kitchen to a whole new level.
