Featured Ingredients

Buttermilk

Buttermilk has been around for centuries, but the buttermilk you find in stores today is different from the buttermilk of the past.

Traditionally, buttermilk was a byproduct of butter making, and it was rather sour.

Modern buttermilk, on the other hand, is made by adding bacteria to low-fat or skim milk. This process yields a milk product that is low in fat but still has a rich, creamy texture and a slightly tangy taste.

Two glasses of buttermilk.

Breadcrumbs


Breadcrumbs are tiny bits of dried bread that are often used as a coating for fried foods. They add a crispy texture and can help to absorb excess oil.

Breadcrumbs are also commonly used as a thickening agent in soups and casseroles.
