Thick and Creamy

This was my first time making buttermilk and my husband loved it! It was thicker than what you buy in the store but very rich and flavorful, it makes great smoothies too. Can’t wait to try using it in a cheese recipe!

Ideal For Cultured Butter

I've been using this culture for years to make cultured butter, similar to the best French butter, using just whipping cream and this buttermilk culture. I follow the New England Cheesemaking recipe and I use their butter muslin and I get great results every time. I shape my butter into a log and wrap it in parchment paper. The butter freezes extremely well. As a bonus you get the lovely authentic buttermilk that is a natural by-product of butter-making. Makes the best biscuits, pancakes, etc.
