Buttermilk starter culture

Very easy to use: Just follow the directions. It produces a thick, almost yoghurt-like result. Produces a refreshing drink that you can also eat with a spoon. Excellent poured over cornbread. I used raw milk. First-rate product. Highly recommended!

Best Buttermilk Pancakes

Every Friday night we use this buttermilk culture to make a fresh batch of buttermilk for Saturday morning pancakes. Absolutely the best! We start with 2% Lactose Free milk, add the culture, let it sit overnight and voilà, delicious buttermilk.

Buttermilk culture

I have bought this again because of the delicious and creamy buttermilk that it creates. It's like magic. This homemade buttermilk makes our pancakes and Ranch dressing absolutely the best!
