Micah has become mildly obsessed with culturing our dairy products as of late. It started when we acquired an ice cream maker back in August. We didn’t want to have to keep half and half or heavy cream on hand all the time, so we started looking at alternatives. It turns out, you can make a killer frozen yogurt with minimal effort. And you can also make killer yogurt with minimal effort. And buttermilk is even easier: just fill a jar 1/4 the way full with buttermilk, then the rest of the way with milk and let it sit out for a day. Voila. Buttermilk. And it makes some darn good ice cream, too.
Some homemade flavors we’ve tried:
vanilla fro yo (obviously)
chocolate buttermilk (it had a delightful cheesecake-ish taste to it)
Yum. I feel like our ice cream world has just been enlarged immeasurably.
