What to do/should I do anything with expired buttermilk?

 Okay, this might sound a little gross, but stay with me.  Does anyone have any suggestions or recipes on what I could do with some expired buttermilk? I know buttermilk is purchased already soured, so I have a feeling you can use it for certain recipes past the "sell by" date? I'm thinking some kind of sour dough bread or something like that? I'm open to any recipe suggestions as I would really like to use it up, it makes me sad to think about throwing most of it away. If anyone has any experience or knowledge on this please fill me in! Thank you so much! :)

You can use buttermilk a long time after the sell by date. As long as it doesn't smell worse than buttermilk smells anyway, it's okay to use. Any kind of bread would be good for older buttermilk - or pancakes!

Thanks! I do have a recipe for whole-wheat pancakes that call for buttermilk, I'm relieved to know it's fine to still use it!

I would use it with any kind of baking, me own self. Bread, cake, muffins, quick bread, anything like that. Don't think of it as expired, think of it as Super Buttermilk.

LOL, you are beyond awesome, Rita. :) I'm glad to know I can still use it and it won't kill me. Super buttermilk here I come! Thanks agin!!

I've used buttermilk for a month or so after the date. It smells REALLY strange when it's "too old". So long as it just smells like buttermilk, I'd use it.

Thanks for the information! I did smell it last night and it seemed fine, but that date was freaking me out and made me second guess myself. I'm glad to know you have used it and it was fine. I'm going to either make some bread or pancakes with it. Thanks again! :)

What about buttermilk pie? I know that's really southern, but whatev. It's tasty!

It's sounds tasty, but I seriously have no idea what it is? I'm a west coast girl...
