Tuesday Tips - Buttermilk

If you're anything like me you never can get through the entire container of buttermilk.  If a recipe calls for buttermilk it always seems to be 1/4 cup or so - nothing close to the smallest of the containers you can purchase.  At times I use this as an opportunity to make buttermilk ranch dressing or to stock up on the dough for scones but other times I just don't want to fool with it.  So...I freeze it! 

At first I pour the buttermilk into ice cube trays to freeze, then I pop them into a gallon baggie and take out "pucks" as needed.  Two pucks equals 1/4 cup from my trays.  When I need a bit of buttermilk I just pull the amount of pucks out the night before and thaw in the fridge overnight.

Need buttermilk in a pinch? Stay tuned for next week!
