Lots of times I’ll start making something at night, yes, without reading the ingredients first, and realize I’m missing something. Last time it was buttermilk. This one’s easy to remedy!
It involves 2 ingredients that you might have lying around:
Just add 1 tablespoon of white vinegar to 1 scant cup of milk. If you only need half a cup of buttermilk, why then, add 1/2 tablespoon of white vinegar to 1/2 scant cup milk.
What is a scant cup? It means just under a cup.
Add the vinegar & let it sit for 5 minutes. Now you’re ready to cook!
PS What if you don’t have white vinegar? Do you have a lemon? Replace the vinegar with lemon juice & you’re good to go!
