How to Easily Keep Buttermilk on Hand
Hi, here's a Betty’s quick tip. And this is actually a continuation of previous tip about having instant buttermilk. Some of you we’re nit able to find the buttermilk mix. I was not really very specific about is what I'm telling you what I was using had the brand Saco, S-A-C-O. And it's called cultured buttermilk blend. So you might or may not be able to find that.
Some people wrote me and said they couldn’t find it, in fact, in that country they couldn’t get buttermilk the actual buttermilk. So what I want to give you for this tip is a way to make your own sort of buttermilk. You will take some milk, it can be skim milk or home milk and I have skim milk here. And I'm going to be making one cup of buttermilk. So what I'm adding here is lemon juice. Need one tablespoon of lemon juice for one cup of milk. I could also -- or instead, I could use white vinegar. I'm not going to use that, so I will make it clear you do not put both of them in there. But measure out one tablespoon of lemon juice. Add that until this comes to one cup, stir your milk and it will act just like buttermilk. So we need buttermilk to react with your soda and so on to make your flour rise, this will work. So this is a nice substitution for buttermilk if you can't get it.
