Do-it-yourself is all the rage

Not only in the construction of individual pieces of furniture, in the creative upcycling of old clothes, etc.: The DIY trend has long since found its way into the kitchen. Jams, chutneys, mustard, herb butter, spicy oils, herbal salts, liqueurs or dried fruit - making it yourself is the motto. With a little effort, having fun experimenting and trying things out, investing a little time and a good portion of love, you can create the greatest delicacies. Homemade food not only tastes individual and great, it is also a very personal gift for special people.

Our recipe for making your own buttermilk fits precisely into this trend. However, you should not necessarily give the buttermilk away as it does not keep very long and should ideally be consumed immediately after production.

By the way: There is another way to make your own buttermilk. Analogous to our recipe for making yogurt yourself, you can simply multiply purchased pure buttermilk with milk. To do this, pour the buttermilk you bought with milk and let it stand for eight to twelve hours at room temperature. During this time, the lactic acid bacteria multiply and transform all of the milk into delicious, homemade buttermilk.
