How many recipes have you seen that have called for buttermilk but you haven’t had any? I know personally, buttermilk is NOT something that I tend to keep on hand very often anymore. Did you know you can make a substitute that tastes pretty much the same (there is a slight difference in taste but not much) AND is SO much more cost effective?


Want to hear how? It’s fairly simple.


Add 2T white vinegar to 2 cups of milk and let it sit long enough to curdle.

Seriously! That’s it! Cheap, effective and tasty in recipes! ;)

    I’ve never bought buttermilk. My mother told me this trick about 55 years ago, when I was a child just learning to bake.

    My mom taught me this secret years ago. I use it anytime I am baking and need buttermilk. I don’t even measure it. I just pour in a little vinegar and add however much milk I need. It works great.
