+1. Unless I have enough recipes lined up to be sure I use an entire quart I rarely buy the liquid kind. With the Buttermilk powder in the fridge I know I always have something doable on hand.

And if you buy something you just can't eat, they do have a money-back guarantee.

I have to say over the years (first started to shop Aldi in the late 1980s) the quality of the foods they offer has improved dramatically.

Thanks for mentioning that, Andy I'll have to look for it. I've been wanting to make buttermilk biscuits, but didn't want to end up wasting any leftovers.

My soda bread recipe calls for 2 cups of buttermilk. I always buy a quart and make two loaves of bread --- no wasted buttermilk. My local grocery store also sells buttermilk in pints (2 cups). I think you can google how to make buttermilk from sweet milk and vinegar or like someone posted above, use yogurt or sour cream.

Put two tablespoons of white vinegar into a 1 cup liquid measure and fill to 1 cup with milk (fat percentage doesn't really matter). In 5 minutes, it's buttermilk.

If I shop at my local smaller faster warehouse store, 1 quart of buttermilk is $2.39 and a 1/2 gallon is $2.79. Guess which one I buy?

I have a wonderful recipe for Saint Patrick's Day soda bread. It is GREEN!

Tart Apple Irish Soda Bread

Ingredients:
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1˝ tsp baking soda
  • 1˝ tsp salt
  • 1 cup low fat buttermilk, divided
  • 1 Pipin or Granny Smith apple, peeled, cored and diced
  • ˝ cup Amoretti Premium Tart Apple Syrup
Instructions:

Preheat the oven to 375°F.

In a large bowl, stir dry ingredients together with a whisk. Make a well in the center and add 1/2 cup of buttermilk. Combine dry ingredients and buttermilk with a fork, gradually adding more of the remaining buttermilk until a soft dough is formed. Fold in the diced apple and the Amoretti Premium Tart Apple Syrup just until blended.

Knead the dough lightly on a floured surface for 1 minute. Form into a slightly flattened circle. Place the loaf on a parchment paper lined baking sheet. With a sharp knife, cut a 1/2-inch deep X in the top of the loaf and bake the soda bread in a 375°F oven for 40 to 45 minutes. The bread is done when it is golden and sounds hollow when tapped on the bottom.

Oh dear. I missed where it says on the tub "refrigerate after opening" , mine sits atop the fridge. I THINK it's still good.

The other reason I avoid buying buttermilk is that I've read that most buttermilk sold in grocery stores is really cultured milk and not true buttermilk. Also, adding an acid to milk simulates buttermilk by activating the leavened, but it doesn't taste like buttermilk. And I want the flavor.

I might just buy some whole milk and make my own butter and buttermilk in the food processor.

Yeah, it's cultured "buttermilk". I feel cheated. They should give a different name.

#1 - Wish we had an Aldi's.

#2 - Can't keep buttermilk in the house. My husband drinks it all. I have some set aside for soda bread tomorrow, he's been forbidden to touch it until I make the bread. If I have it, I use it for biscuits, to soak chicken in, make ranch dressing and cole slaw with...but it's always gone!

#3 -I've done the vinegar or lemon juice in regular milk to simulate buttermilk, and it may be psychosomatic, but it just don't taste or act the same to me in cooking.
