Who Likes Buttermilk?

I have always despised milk, can't stand it. Don't like the way it looks, don't like the smell, don't even eat cereal. But I will drink buttermilk any day of the week.

It was a staple around the house. My Dad would fill a large glass full of bread pieces and then top it off with buttermilk. Me and my mom, well, we would get a large glass of buttermilk and top it off with s&p.

Anyone else enjoy buttermilk, and how so?

I consider it an ingredient only. I never developed a taste for it as a beverage.

Considering how much buttermilk I culture, one could make the assumption that I liked the stuff. But I, also, only use it as an ingredient. I use almost a quart every week-end to make pancakes. It is also a key ingredient for me to set cheeses.

I don't care to drink buttermilk but I always have a quart of it in the refrigerator to use in pancakes, cornbread, salad dressings, etc.

Although, when I was a child my father used to drink a big glass of it every night before bed. He'd crunch up a handful of saltine crackers and stir them in and down it all went. I never understood why that tasted good, but he loved it.

I like the taste of it for drinking and like to use it in cooking. Biscuits, pancakes, waffles, marinating chicken, etc.

I've tried to drink it but can't acquire a taste for it. But I use it in recipes all the time. Yep, my dad would crumble up cornbread and put in buttermilk with salt and pepper.
