We bought a half gallon of buttermilk reduced for only 25 Cents.
The other day, my wife purchased a half gallon of cultured buttermilk reduced for quick sale.
The half gallon of buttermilk was only 25 cents. Believe it or not. And I do love cold buttermilk.
When we go shopping for groceries, we do look at the reduced items, marked down by a department manager, for quick sale. But we also look at the expiration date. If a half gallon of milk has a sell by date that is within 5 days or less than the current date, it can be refrigerated and will last for several days beyond the sell by date on the plastic carton.
It is always a good choice to make. Some people actually will pass by the reduced dairy products thinking they are probably going to spoil. Well, I can tell if milk or for that matter, buttermilk is fresh or not. It will have a pungent odor that is just unpleasant to the senses. I am quite lucky that my wife knows well how to make homemade buttermilk biscuits, that taste as good as any ever made on the market. We now use filtered water to everything. Carbon filtered water instead of tap water that is unfiltered, offers a chlorine free water that makes soups and beverages and anything else made using water much better tasting.
