Freezing Buttermilk and Heavy Cream

How many cartons of buttermilk and heavy cream have I thrown away in my cooking lifetime?  Too many.

How many times has my recipe called for just a half cup or some amount – leaving the rest to waste?  Also, too many.

Well those days are over.  I finally figured out that I can freeze these items immediately after purchasing and thaw them (or chunks of them) only when needed.

Freezing Buttermilk and Heavy Cream

I store the buttermilk in cup portions.

I store the heavy cream in pint portions.

And every time I use them, I am SOOOOO happy with myself.
