What Can I Do With a Carton of Buttermilk?

Good Questions

Q: I have most of a carton of buttermilk and nothing to use it for! Neither my husband nor I are big milk drinkers so I would love to make something with it.

Unfortunately most recipes only seem to call for about a cup of the stuff and I estimate that I have closer to three. Any suggestions?

Sent by SaraEditor: Sara, plain buttermilk pancakes or biscuits are a great way to use up some extra buttermilk. You can also make ice cream, or just freeze the buttermilk itself for later.

Readers, what's your favorite way to use up some buttermilk?
