No Buttermilk? No Problem!


Have you ever come across a recipe that requires buttermilk and you don't have any on hand, and you don't feel like running out to get some? Did you know you can easily make your own with just 2 ingredients you likely do have: lemons and milk. If you don't have a lemon, you can use white vinegar. Measure out 1 scant cup of milk product of your choice and add 1 TBSP of freshly squeezed lemon juice or white vinegar. Mix throughly and let sit for 10 minutes. Mix again before using.


According to a 2022 article in Good Housekeeping written by Loren Cecil, you may also substitute plain yogurt but you may need to think it out with water or milk to get the proper consistency.
