1. It's the milk left over from making butter

2. But it doesn't taste like butter right
It might be the smell that turns me off.

Do you like it?

3. I would think it would be just skim milk so something must be added.
I love it when I tell the kids if we did not have cream for coffee we took the top off the milk. They are always sure I am nuts and roll their eyes. I did used to know an old women in NH that made butter in front of me in a funny looking thing and I used to roll my eyes and think she was nuts. Life does move on.

5. depends on the type of the butter
If the milk is from sour butter making; it is already buttermilk (and a higher grade at that).
Milk from sweet butter has to be fermented with sour cultures in order to become buttermilk.

There is nothing better than buttermilk with flakes of butter still in it...

4. Real buttermilk is the
liquid left over after butter is made. Modern buttermilk, sometimes called cultured buttermilk, is made with an enzyme much like yogurt.
