Learn how to make buttermilk with this simple recipe. It's really easy, only takes 10 minutes and 2 ingredients.
1 cup milk (whole, 2%, 1% or skim - your preference)
1 Tbsp. acid (lemon juice or white vinegar)
Measure out 1 cup of milk. Add 1 tablespoon of acid.
Gently stir, then let it rest for 10 minutes at room temperature.
Stir again. Use immediately or store in the refrigerator for up to a week.
I haven't found that the extra tablespoon of liquid makes a difference in the recipes where I use homemade buttermilk, but if it's a concern for you, measure the 1 tablespoon of acid into your measuring cup first, then pour in the milk to a level 1 cup.
