Gr8 Do Ahead Tip:
If choosing to make ahead, roast garlic as directed above. When completely cool, place in a covered plastic container until ready use.
Gr8 Tip:
If you love buttermilk as much as we do, but don’t love that much of it goes to waste when buying it for a specific recipe, try powdered buttermilk. It’s a Gr8 solution! And, once the can is opened it can stay in your refrigerator for at least a year! Here is an article the New York Times did on powdered buttermilk.
