How to... Make Buttermilk

Buttermilk is in a lot of recipes I use (read: corn bread, dumplings, baked goods, pancakes, etc), but I hate that I only need 1/2 cup here, 1/4 cup there... and then the buttermilk just sits in my fridge until the expiry date comes up and I've just wasted food.

Well- waste no more because you can MAKE BUTTERMILK right in your home, and you can control how much you need. It's really easy too- you just need 1 Tbsp vinegar to a scant cup of milk. A wonderful substitute!


  • 1 Tbsp white distilled vinegar
  • 2% milk, just under 1 cup (Don't use skim milk, I've tried and it just doesn't take well)
  1. Place 1 Tbsp vinegar in a liquid measuring cup.
  2. Add enough milk to bring the liquid to 1 cup line.
  3. Let stand at room temperature for 15 minutes. (The milk will begin to curdle.)
  4. Stir the buttermilk thoroughly before using in the recipe.
