Things to do with homemade butter and buttermilk:

-make buttermilk waffles (Luisa, these were nothing special- a recipe from How to Cook Everything which is actually and "easier" waffle as the batter doesn't need to rest. I accidentally added one egg yolk too many which was a good accident.)

-make ginger-horseradish compound butter (with ginger, horseradish, garlic and a little soy sauce). Top steak with it, or rub it under the skin of your weekly roast chicken.

-make Nigella's vanilla shortbread from Forever Summer. Only do this if you have plans to share it or you are liable to eat all the shortbread yourself.

-eat lots and lots of bread and butter.

The butter doesn't keep more than a week, I found, so it is best to make small batches. Or to up your butter intake significantly. I suppose it depends on how you define "best."
