What to do with leftover buttermilk

Buttermilk is a tricky purchase: it's absolutely essential to some recipes, but you almost always end up with some of it left over, languishing in the fridge and waiting for you to notice the expired expiration date.

Here are a few things to help you use it up:

Buttermilk fried chicken: The buttermilk tenderizes the chicken and adds another component of flavor to what's already a classic. (Simply Recipes has a good recipe.)

Buttermilk in mashed potatoes: The tart creaminess adds tons of flavor, and contributes less fat than cream or whole milk.

Whole wheat pancakes:These work so much better with the richness of buttermilk, and they lend an added savoriness that makes these pancakes work well as a side for any meal of the day.

Buttermilk soups:The tangy taste of buttermilk goes well with many subtle and sweet vegetables like cucumbers, beets, celery and summer squash. Alone, they form the backbone of some simple and delicious soup recipes – cook vegetables, blend until smooth, stir in buttermilk – that are really wonderful when served cold.
