Did you ever get ready to make a recipe that calls for buttermilk  to find that you don’t have any on hand?   Here is a handy tip on how to make a substitute for buttermilk in a recipe. Many of you probably already know this but each time I post a recipe that calls for buttermilk, I always get asked what can be substituted.

Combine 1 tablespoon white vinegar or 1 tablespoon lemon juice with enough milk to make 1 cup.  Let stand for 5 minutes.  This makes 1 cup buttermilk for use in recipes.
