I usually make it with lemon juice beause when I buy buttermilk & use what I need, the rest ends up going down the drain.

I'm about 1/2 and 1/2 with the buttermilk vs soured milk thing. I rarely keep buttermilk in the house, but when I have it, I use it to make those things that I feel require it.

Otter, is SACO powder a dry buttermilk? It is ringing a bell in my head but it's not loud enough to be heard clearly this morning.

It's dry, and 4T added to 1 cup water = 1 cup buttermilk. I always wound up throwing out buttermilk, so I went to adding lemon, but with only skim in the house, it came out wimpy. I have a can of the SACO powder now, but have yet to use it.

Is SACO an acronym or is that the real name of the stuff. I will look for this in the store, but want to be sure to get the right stuff.

Now that bell is real loud! Thanks Otter. My mom uses SACO. (I did a serch for it & when I saw the can I rememberd seeing it sitting on the counter at her house lastnight.)

Let me know if she has any usage tips above and beyond what's on the label. Thanks!

Have you checked out their website? There are a lot of good looking recipes there.

http://www.sacofoods.com/culteredbuttermilkblend.html

http://www.sacofoods.com/cgi-bin/recsearch.cgi

The first link is to their homepage & the 2nd is to their recipes using the buttermilk powder. I didn't go through all the recipes because there are so many of them.

I keep a canister of SACO in my freezer. I use milk with vinegar sometimes also. If I know ahead of time I will be making something with it, I might buy buttermilk some time, but since I don't like to drink it I don't keep it on hand.

Just a tip for those of you using vinegar to sour milk. Try using lemon juice instead, no nasty aftertaste and same effects.

Thanks Alix. I've never noticed a problem using vinegar, but I will try the lemon juice some time. I looked it up just before my last post, and you use a little less vinegar than lemon juice. I love the powdered buttermilk, so I've been using that mostly. :)

I use buttermilk - it will keep FOREVER in the fridge - lol, I had some that was a month over date once, and it was fine!

And remember, it's not just for biscuits - 'marinating' chicken or catfish in buttermilk is an awesome way to go!

Otter, I checked with my mom & she didn't have anything to add to what's on the back of the can of SACO other than that she uses it in her cornbread instead of regular milk.

I generally use buttermilk - but I have resorted to making my own substitute (lemon juice and milk) a couple of times.

I generally only buy a pint or quart (depends on how much I need) and if there is any leftover I do what my grandma did .... crumble up some cornbread in a glass, cover with buttermilk, eat with a spoon.
