Robo410 - that only pertains to the current "stuff" you get at the supermarket. The true buttermilk from this roadside stand had actual lumps of butter in it (I asked the actual dairy farmer about it & how he made it. They purposely sieved it to allow butterfat through.). This was the real stuff - not the cultured supermarket "stuff".

My dad used to eat that for dessert. I can remember looking at him like he had 3 eyes and was totally grossed out by the concoction.

In fact, I looked at him like my kids looked at me when I ate something that they found discusting. What comes around, goes around!

Give me a nice size glass of fresh ice-cold I% lowfat milk any day, and I'll show you what to do with it!! Drink it as if it were whole milk!

We would come home from church on Sunday night ... and it was a mad dash for the 'fridge to find something to snack on - of course we also had a black-and-white TV at that time and my favorite show was "Boston Blackie" (circa 1952?).

I could never develop the taste to drink the stuff (kind of like I like single malt Scotch but don't care much for the blended stuff) - but I enjoyed many after church snacks of crumbled cornbread with buttermilk - sometimes with crumbled up bacon or sausage bits.

I can eat or drink yogurt and sour cream to no end, but this stuff, I just can't stand! Except for baking with it.

Buttermilk is one of my favorite ingredients for baking - it allows you to use less butter/oil and get a good result. But I'd never drink it plain.

I forgot!

Buttermilk is also good for making the best Southern fried chicken. I make it from time to time when I feel like eating some real down-home fried chicken.

Not all the time though, because it's fattening.
