Sky I use to help my grandmother churn. Takes a while to make buttermilk. Almost as bad as cranking an old ice cream freezer. I think I'll pass on this one but I would enjoy a glass of your fresh buttermilk with some good warm cornbread in it.

Or you could just put it in a food processor and have it done in about 2 minutes.

Wouldn;t be the real deal without the labor of churning it. Kind of like home made ice cream doesn;t taste the same unless you've sent your time at the crank

Good question

Because it's the liquid left over after making butter. I guess you could call it a "by-product". :shock:

I buy some of the best I ever ate and never have to keep the cow. I love salted homemade Jersey butter. $7 a lb and would give more if I had to.

Will any of the next generation even know what it is much less how to produce it. Very sad.
