Why no Alix, the limes we grow HERE in North Carolina are so sweet you wouldn't believe it!!!!! It's a real sugar rush!

Jenny - buttermilk is fat free - I've never seen it any other way. I just don't understand drinking it at all = it is some nasty stuff. My Dad always broke up cornbread and put buttermilk over it in a bowl. Around here if you are sitting at the lunch counter of this one place, and other places too - if you order milk they will ask if you mean "sweet" milk as so many people drink buttermilk.

It's good for cooking/recipes but I have never developed a taste for it just plain.

I love buttermilk but you will never see me drink milk...never liked it. Years ago the buttermilk was soooooo good. It had real pieces of butter in it.

May I always be the person my dog thinks I am.

I don't know if it's a southern thing or not, but my daddy used to pour a big, tall glass of buttermilk at night and crush up a bunch of saltine crackers in it. He enjoyed it as if it were a heavenly treat. Ugh! I loved my daddy, but...buttermilk and saltines before bed. No can do. Give me a break!!!

Buttermilk is what's left over from churning cream to make butter. As all the fat in the cream becomes butter, what's left is fat free.
