How to make Buttermilk

I was in search for a muffin recipe this week and came across this one, for pumpkin bran muffins.  I made a special trip to the store and made sure that I had all of my ingredients, but of course I forgot the buttermilk.  Buttermilk is one of those things that I just don’t buy because most recipes only use just a little bit, and then your stuck with a cup or so left over, and what do you do with left over butter milk?

Maybe this is common knowledge, but I just discovered all you need to make buttermilk is, milk and vinegar or lemon juice.  That’s IT!

How to make Buttermilk
Homemade buttermilk ingredients
  • 1 cup milk
  • 4 1/2 tsp vinegar

Mix 1 cup of milk with 4 1/2 tsp vinegar (or lemon juice) let it sit on the counter for 15 min or so and you will have instant homemade buttermilk!

*note* If you do happen to remember to buy buttermilk for your cooking you can pour it into ice cube trays and freeze it.
