Question

I have never had buttermilk, can anyone tell me what it taste like? Does it have a sour taste?

Yes, it has a sour flavor, but sour cream would probably be close to buttermilk taste. I always put a little salt in mine and drink it ice cold.Today's buttermilk is different than in the "older days". Nothing was wasted, and after the butter was churned, you had a creamier buttermilk, due to the little flecks of butter in it.

Yes, it does have a sour taste - kind of like liquid yogurt.

We as kids, used to get milk that had cream on top of it when the milkman delivered it.

We all ran for the chance to skim the cream off and eat it. Mom used to get mad that we did that - because she wanted some of it also!

Well I've not tasted it since I was a kid and that wasn't a pleasent moment so I've never been tempted to torture my tastebuds again. However, I do love using it to marinate meats.

My mom always had buttermilk with cornbread in it, which I thought was icky. As an adult, I love buttermilk (without the bread) I drink it, bake with it, soak chicken in it to fry, make salad dressing, and it is a must for cornbread.

I cannot drink regular milk, but love buttermilk. I haven't drank regular milk since I was a child. I lean towards sour flavors so I guess that has something to do with my being able to drink buttermilk.

I love buttermilk biscuits, too!!!
