It is the liquid left over from the butter making process, but real butter can only be made from cream, not milk. Cream as you know separates from fresh milk and rises to the top.

Skimmed milk is milk in which the fat solids have been skimmed off.

Most buttermilk sold is cultured, so it's not real buttermilk at all, rather it is cultured, much the same way Matney expalined.

Where do I get all this useless dairy knwledge? Living in a state with more cows than people helps :wink:
As I said, it's disgusting stuff . . .

Sorry MHB, all gone! Was to sweet anyway, 15 supercharged toddlers cannot be wrong.
Btw I love the way the threads turn out:
Q:' where to buy product A?'
A: (few days later) "I have weird stuff in my fridge..."
:? :lol:

Nope, it's disgusting thick stuff . . .
Umm...buttermilk isn't thick, dunno what you were forced to have. Next time you're visiting India ask for some, you get it in various flavours, but mostly salty and during summer works as a coolant for your system. I love it!

The thick stuff is called 'lassi' in India, not sure what's the term in the English language.
It's not getting any smarter out there. You have to come to terms with stupidity, and make it work for you.
