I can not thank you enuf for posting this, I used another recipe the first time I tried to make my own buttermilk that said to use skim milk (I hate all reduced fat milk because of the process that they use to get the fat out, we only use whole milk in our house!) but I tried it anyway, that batch was ok but kept separating.. THIS ONE IS AMAZING IT IS THICK AND CREAMY AND SOOOOOO PRETTY AND PERFECT!! So thank you.. I will never buy buttermilk again!!!
