What’s New at CFH: Save 20% on Buttermilk Starter & Lacto-fermented Recipes


Every week we’re going to bring you the best of the week in posts from right here at the CFH blog, news you can use from the CFH site, and new recipes and products you might be interested in.

This week you can save 20% on Buttermilk Starter!  And don’t miss three new lacto-fermented recipes.

Save on Buttermilk Starter!


Our heirloom-variety buttermilk starter creates a traditional cultured buttermilk that is rich in nutritional value including enzymes, potassium, vitamin B12, riboflavin, and calcium, allowing you to make buttermilk without the additives and stabilizers common in commercially available varieties of buttermilk. One packet of starter culture can be used to make a mother culture. With proper care, the culture can be recultured and perpetuated to make unlimited amounts of buttermilk. The culture is perpetuated by using a small amount of buttermilk reserved from the current batch to inoculate the next batch of homemade buttermilk. With care, our buttermilk culture can be used to make homemade buttermilk indefinitely. No more having to continually buy buttermilk.

Homemade buttermilk can be used for baking, drinking or can be added to cream to make creème fraîche (European-style sour cream) or cultured butter.

  • Easy to use! Make delicious, creamy buttermilk at home
  • Cultures at 70° to 78°F, no heating appliance required
  • Reusable culture: a small amount of each batch can be used to make the next batch
