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.
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!
All of your products are high quality and well priced. Using the buttermilk culture for my first go at Limburger cheese. Cheers and thank you.
Super easy starter. Stir and let sit overnight and you have lovely buttermilk the next morning.
