How To: Make Your Own Buttermilk

I went to the grocery store the other day to buy buttermilk and they were out. How were they out of buttermilk you ask? Well maybe everyone was making Green Velvet Cake…or not. Whatever the case, I thought perhaps I should share with you how to make your own buttermilk, just in case you’re ever standing in the grocery store staring at the empty buttermilk fridge as I was.

Homemade Buttermilk (from my Mama’s words of wisedom)

Makes one cup

1 cup milk, any percentage

Juice of half a lemon

Squeeze the lemon over the top of the milk in a measuring cup. Allow for the mixture to curdle for at least thirty seconds. Stir and use as you would store-bought buttermilk.
