seems to work well in baking!

Used for annabel karmels blueberry pancakes... Really tasty, low fat pancakes. All the kids loved them. Looking for other baking recipies with it in now, as an alternative to fat!

Unexpectedly thick and gloopy

I'm used to buttermilk that's liquid, like real milk with bits near the bottom. This, I guess because it's cultured whatever that means, it has the consistency of thick yoghurt. As it happened, that worked in my favour as I was using it to coat green tomatoes for frying, but I'm not sure this would be good for drinking.

Delicious, affordable and right quantity

You don't need liters and liters of the stuff. Just a little bit will go a long way.

poor package and too small

Buttermilk is essential in mashed potatoes, fried chicken, onion rings not to mention all of the breads and cakes. I can buy a litre of the stuff from my polish shop for 69p. (Please ocado stock more polish products). This carton is always too small and is too flimsy. I notice that ocado also sells Irish buttermilk in a bigger container.

Awful Packaging Ocado partly to blame

As others have said this packaging is ill-conceived, I have yet to receive this products without the lid having come apart from the container. The people packing for Ocado do not help because they frequently pack the item with other heavy items which press against the container causing the lid to come loose. The contents are great, but I cannot risk buying this item again because I know packaging will burst open and the contents will end up all over my other food.


Fruit & Nut Tea Loaf

Moist, mouthwatering and fruity, this wonderful cake is a must-bake treat for a rainy afternoon.

This is another of those simple, quick, yeast-free breads that can be put together in next to no time. It’s not bread at all really, more a sort of savoury cake, and I absolutely love it. The plain version is delicious with bacon for breakfast, or as an accompaniment to hearty, beany stews or soups. However, if you add a few extra tasty ingredients (see suggestions below), it becomes almost a meal in itself and you don’t need much with it except maybe some scrambled eggs or salad.

Mackerel is pickled and served with cucumber, dill and an ingenious buttermilk snow. If you adore contemporary Scandanavian cuisine then this dish is for you.

Rose water and buttermilk is a truly heavenly combination. These delicious panna cottas are more simple to recreate than they look, and will please anyone with a sweet tooth.
