Preheat oven to 350°F. Gently melt butter in a saucepan. Once melted, stir in buttermilk and set aside. Meanwhile combine sugar and flour in a blender on low. Add melted butter mixture, vanilla, and sea salt and blend. Add eggs, one at a time, blending until well combined. Pour batter into crust and bake for 35 to 45 minutes, until the pie is just set in the middle. Cool on a rack before serving.
