If You Only Buy One Culture

NE Cheese Buttermilk Culture is quickly becoming one of my favorites. I have used it for making cultured butter, buttermilk, and cottage cheese so far. It’s very versatile and tastes great.

Works really well!

I have made a few batches using this culture and the results have been great! Most store bought buttermilk seems to have a lot of added sodium, which I try to avoid while home made has only the sodium present in the milk. Great for baking or just drinking!
