Old-school buttermilk skills

Sure, you should take your mom to brunch this weekend. But learning to make buttermilk together will cement your title as World's Best Son or Daughter. Ensuring untold weekends of homemade pancakes, beauty products, and other rich and tangy delights is a real Mother's Day gift. Besides being a tasty glass of American heritage, buttermilk is emblematic of The Old School, a new teaching organization that's dedicated to "frugal, traditional and sustainable living." Saturday's inaugural class at the Albuquerque Mennonite Church (1300 Girard NE) is being taught by author and national buttermilk authority Peter Rice. For $10 you'll get all the supplies, hands-on instruction and recipes you'll need to get churning. Free, safe childcare is provided for all Old School classes. Moms rejoice!
