- Prep Time : 5 minutes
Isn't it annoying when you get all geared up to make a recipe and it calls for buttermilk, something few of us typically have on hand? Rather than get in your car and head to the store, make your own. It's easy! Simply combine milk and lemon juice or vinegar. Let it sit for about 5 minutes. It will take on a somewhat curdled appearance. You want that so that it reacts correctly in your recipe.
Ta-Da! You've just made buttermilk that will work perfectly in your next recipe. Go ahead, brag to your family. You deserve the attention!
