Buttermilk is one of those things that are difficult to find in Thailand. And if found, is pretty expensive! Make your own cultured buttermilk easily and with this starter culture from Poland, it will taste REALLY good. Start making those buttermilk biscuits and pancakes again. Or drink it straight.
Sour Cream is more easily found but not so much in the less populated areas. But making your own, you’ll find the taste superior and cheaper than store bought.
Each order has 5 single dose packages. Each dose will culture 1 liter of milk or cream to make delicious buttermilk or sour cream.
Just a note on the following recipes, you’ll have each recipe to let the buttermilk or sour cream sit at 25ºC. In most parts of Thailand, this pretty much means room temperature. Don’t worry if it’s a few degrees warmer or cooler.
You will need to keep an eye out during the culturing process to get the consistency you desire. Especially with the buttermilk, if you let it culture for too long, it will develop a consistency of firm yogurt. As soon as you get it the way you want, send it to the refrigerator to stop the culturing from firming it up more.
