If a recipe calls for Buttermilk and you have none on hand use this homemade version. It is much cheaper then buying it and works just as well. NOTE: Please make sure all ingredients are at room temperature or the mixture wil curdle on you.

Used this buttermilk when making mashed potatoes and they tasted great. I like that this recipe saves me money and works as well as real buttermilk. Have all the ingredients on hand so I can make it anytime I need buttermilk. Thank you for sharing this recipe! Made and reviewed for KK's Recipe Tag Game.
