buttermilk tip

if you are out of buttermilk and you need it for a recipe here you go:

You can add 1 tablespoon vinegar or lemon juice to 1 cup milk. Stir and let stand for 5 minutes. Or you can use plain yogurt instead of buttermilk.

I don't always have buttermilk on hand and it's nice if I want to make some biscuits that I can use this to supplement it!

Great tips!

I learned from King Arthur that you can freeze buttermilk!!! Now I freeze my leftover buttermilk after making pancakes in 1 c. measures. I love it!

I use this frequently. Did you know that if you do this to powdered milk, though, it curdles completely within a few seconds? That was a funny discovery I made a few days ago...

Thank you for this, I knew that there was a substitute but not what it was

Another thing I recently found. They sell powdered butter milk in the baking section. And if you keep it in the fridge after opening it, it stays for a year! Beats buying buttermilk all the time.
