St David Dairy Buttermilk 375ml


St David Dairy Buttermilk is the liquid left over from churning butter from cultured cream. Traditionally, before the advent of homogenization, the milk was left to sit for a period of time to allow the cream and milk to separate. During this time, naturally occurring lactic acid-producing bacteria in the milk fermented it. This facilitates the butter churning process, since fat from cream with a lower pH coalesces more readily than that of fresh cream. Ideal for using in soda bread, scones and fried chicken.

A little history about St David Dairy

St David Dairy  is an inner city dairy with a focus on being Local, Fresh, Ethical & Sustainable. Milk is sourced from carefully selected farmers from the rolling hills of Gippsland, at the base of the Strezlecki ranges and brought to the dairy in a custom made small milk tanker for processing in Fitzroy. By using a small circle of distribution & daily milk sourced close to the dairy gate, St David Dairy products are as fresh as possible.
