Bulgarian word for buttermilk

Postby stained_glasser » Mon Oct 11, 2010 8:15 pm

Hi all
Does anyone know what the Bulgarian work for buttermilk is? Thanx in advance.

BTW I am now permanently in BG after been made redundant in UK. I have a limited amount of glass here so if anyone is looking for some stained glass work give us a shout, oh and sorry but the glass was bought at UK prices so any work will have to be priced as such!!!

Cheers
Gary

As I understand it, butter in Bulgaria is made from cream that has been aged, to give a 'riper' flavour, unlike in the UK where it is made from fresh cream. This could give the buttermilk an 'off' flavour . I haven't seen any cultured buttermilk at all.

Irn Bru ? No but it is a nice idea !

I am not sure that we have a word in English for "Ayran" or "Lassi" as it is known in Hindi/Urdu.

Hi folks

As far as I'm aware ayran is watered down kisli mylako with a touch of salt.

Very refreshing on a hot day but its no way buttermilk.

As messers Leedarkwood said they leave it to "cure" into a nasty brew, which I will not and wont ever eat or drink. Same for the butter. If you want to preserve milk, why not go the whole hog and do it properly.

I was brought up on butter milk, yoghurt, soft cheese, rosehip jelly and Mums brown brick bread for breakfast. I am sure my mother thought that if the pigs cant eat anymore of it the kids will!

Mind you it was all goats milk and in a more favorable climate for dairy products.

Maybe its just too hot here.

Here's to buttermilk

Cheers

Andy

Andy is right. "Ayran" is yoghurt, water and salt.

Yes,you are right Ayran is the true equivalent of Indian Lassi.I just said what restaurant menu had it translated for,was with Welsh friends and they both liked the drink,it was their first time tasting Ayran,over a 4 years stay in BG :)
