"i use this all the time. clever you for writing out a recipe so others know , this really works made for u.s. southern leg of new world tour"
"i have been using this forever...i dont even buy buttermilk when needed. great!"
"OMG!! My brain is so HAPPY to find this receipe!! I'll never buy Buttermilk again!! THANKS for sharing! AWESOME!!"
"I seem to never have buttermilk on hand when I need it, so I always use this little trick when I'm in a pinch. Seems I am constantly calling on this recipe when I am preparing Recipe #98415. Works great. I wouldn't hesitate to try it with other recipes. At least I wouldn't end up wasting half the container (of buttermilk) for those times when I actually do remember to buy it!"
"This worked for me in recipe 168645 (Pancakes for Two)."
"I have been using this substitute for years now, first when ever I forgot buttermilk, but now I don't even bother with getting the buttermilk. I see absolutely no difference in the outcome of the dishes I use it in. You can also add lemon juice if you do not have vinegar."
"What a wonderful substitution recipe! It is a time- AND money-saver! Sometimes you just need a bit, and this recipe fits the bill. I even gave the recipe to a girl at the grocery store today! :-) Thanks for taking the time to post what has surely been a lifesaver for some (I ALWAYS forget the buttermilk, because I don't have a call to use it very often - LOL) and will continue to 'give' in the future! (Used in recipe#161680 #161680)Thanks for posting, Deb!"
"Absolutely GREAT, & it will definitely keep me from ever having well-aged buttermilk in my frig! Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe! [Made & reviewed in Zaar Stars tag]"
"I also use this all of the time. Now I never waste that store-bought buttermilk anymore. lol. I used this in recipe #517594 with great results. Thanks, Deb, for sharing. Made for Culinary Quest 2014."
"This is a great sub for buttermilk, it doesn't have the same rich flavor of buttermilk but helps in a pinch"
"Buttermilk is not available where I live. Thank you!"
"Never need to buy buttermilk again! This is just the thing to make and ushe when buttermilk is needed. No more buying containers and throwing half out for me ever again. And it so easy and quick also!
Thanks Deb this worked so well for my puddig."
"This works really well. I've never used it in dressings, but I have used it to cook with. I remember my Mom doing this too. Thanks for posting!"
"It works and you can always make just as much as needed."
"I've used this recipe for years. It works exactly as advertised. It's wonderful because when you don't need a large amount of buttermilk, or don't have any and can't run out to the store. This is one recipe that should be in every baker's repertoire! Thanks for posting. Made for Everyday's a Holiday Tag."
"Works perfectly each and every time and great when you just need a small amount. I used it to make Recipe #390551. Yumm"
"I hardly ever use buttermilk, and I bought some dried buttermilk powder, but it turned into a hard clump, so now I have this recipe to use whenever I need a little buttermilk. Thanks! Made for Newest Zaar Tag."
"This is a trick my grandmother used to use (back in the old days when recipes used to call for "sour" milk.) It adds the "tang" of buttermilk and you don't have to buy a quart of it, which doesn't always get used up."
