I searched and found this, has anyone ever tried this ?


Making a recipe that calls for buttermilk? Use this simple substitute, and you won't need to buy any:
Prep Time: 5 minutes

Ingredients:
  • Milk (just under one cup)
  • 1 Tablespoon white vinegar or lemon juice
1. Place a Tablespoon of white vinegar or lemon juice in a liquid measuring cup.
2. Add enough milk to bring the liquid up to the one-cup line. 3. Let stand for five minute. Then, use as much as your recipe calls for.

Yes, that is an acceptable sub. For some reason I prefer lime juice as the acid. I have used this method a LOT with great results.

As a side topic how do you use the powdered buttermilk? Do you reconsititute it first? I've often thought of getting some but am just not confident enough to spend the money on it.

I don't like the flavor of powdered milk so have never considered powdered buttermilk. I'd rather just sub with milk and an acid.
