We love our Buttermilk…………………………

Buttermilk may be easier to digest than other dairy products. The lactic acid in buttermilk can make its lactose content easier to digest. May support strong bones. May improve oral health. May help lower your cholesterol levels. Linked to lower blood pressure levels. Buttermilk also is high in potassium, vitamin B12, calcium, and riboflavin as well as a good source of phosphorus. Buttermilk can be fresh, frozen, and sold in powdered form.

Eat Healthier, Switch to low-fat dairy…………..

Many dairy products used in cooking and baking are high in fat. You can lower the fat content without compromising taste. Instead of whole milk or half-and-half, pour 1% or skim milk, condensed skim milk, or nonfat half-and-half. Instead of sour cream, try low-fat or nonfat plain yogurt, buttermilk, or even low-fat cottage cheese (you may need to blend it first to make it smooth.)

I came across these Healthy Dairy Hints and Tips at the Joslin Diabetes Center website. (

* Try low fat cheeses, skim or low-fat milk, and low-fat and non-fat yogurt.
* Use evaporated skim milk when making cream sauces.
* Cook with an egg substitute.
* Try fat-free half and half in coffee.
* Use small amounts of trans fat-free margarine.

Love that Buttermilk…..

Buttermilk can be substituted for 2 percent or whole milk in most pastry or bread recipes. Buttermilk is less than 1 percent fat, almost equal to skim milk, but has a thicker consistency.

Cutting fat and calories……

A good way to decrease the amount of fat and calories in your recipes is to use fat-free milk or 1% milk instead of whole or reduced-fat (2%) milk. For extra richness, try fat-free half-and-half or evaporated skim milk.

The problem: You love store-bought butter spreads, but you know the trans fat inside aren’t good for you. The solution? Make your own at home! Just combine a stick of butter and 1/4 cup canola oil with a hand mixer. It will be soft and easy to spread!

Because of its high water content, cottage cheese doesn’t last as long as other food products in the refrigerator. To extend its life, store in a container upside down. This will also work for other dairy products like mayonnaise and sour cream.

To soften a piece of hardened (but not moldy) cheese, submerge it in a bowl of buttermilk for one minute. If it’s still not soft, cover the dish and refrigerate it overnight.

After finishing a stick of unsalted butter, hold on to the wrapper. It’ll come in  handy when you need to grease a pan: Simply wipe the pan with it. But don’t use wrappers from salted butter, since they may cause food to stick.

Where you store butter will affect how long it lasts. It will keep for around six months in the freezer, but if you’re storing it in the fridge, it will start to lose its flavor after three weeks. Butter tends to absorb odors and flavors more rapidly than other foods, so make sure ti wrap it in a few layers of plastic wrap or foil before storing, especially in the freezer.
