LiveJournal. lady_fox and I are doing Science! Food Science! Standing in the kitchen right now is a bowl. In that bowl is a quart of cream and a tablespoon 1/4 cup of buttermilk. You take the cream and heat it to about 85 degrees. Take it off the heat and stir in the buttermilk. Let it sit lightly covered with a towel in a warm place for 24-48 hours and it turns into crème fraîche. Skim the fat, leave the whey and package the rest away. Huzzah!

BUT! That's not all. We bought powdered buttermilk and have regular buttermilk. According to our absolute favorite cooking magazine, powdered buttermilk reconstitutes so well, their tasters couldn't tell the difference. We are, subsequently, making two batches of buttermilk pancakes to test.

Isn't that awesome? Yes! It is awesome! Especially the last part if true because powdered buttermilk has a significantly longer shelf life. :)

Lastly: I made an ass of myself in text messages last night to nyxx_j. Let me just say to any who may date me: I am too excited when texting you to check auto-correct.

Best to find it endearing or we're just never going to work out, LJ. Ok? Can you do that for me because I'm totally worth it. :D
