Cultures for Health now has a GREAT Buttermilk down here in Old Mexico

now into my 81 year of life was missing my daily Buttermilk ---- sooooo several years back I brought one of your Cultures down here and it has been going strong. But with my luck got me more cause you just never know when it will fail out. So now have me a 2nd "batch" going ---- and interestingly enough there are neighbors who are cooking with it now --- NO BUTTERMILK AVAILABLE here in Mexico .

Excellent Buttermilk

I never knew how excellent fresh buttermilk was until I made it and used it in ranch dressing as well as in other recipes. It was also incredibly easy to make! I like that I am able to use whole milk which makes a rich, creamy, and delicious buttermilk. Thanks Cultures For Health for leading me down this path! I make the Greek yogurt, sauerkraut, sourdough, and now buttermilk. What's next.....maybe kombucha? Love your 'how to' videos too!


Haven’t had time to try it yet but was going to and hoping to do buttermilk from nut milks like coconut and almond. Love your other products like vegan cheese .

I love it.

I love that I can continue to make buttermilk.

Good but makes way to much

The buttermilk starter I ordered worked great. My problem is it makes way touch. Not prducing it for sale, I only need a small batch. I have it in the rest in the freezer. I will figure out how to tailer it to my needs.
