I was so excited to learn this easy cooking trick!

Buttermilk is a great ingredient to add to cornbreads, cakes, pancakes, and various batters. It is also a main ingredient in my favorite homemade ranch dressing.

The problem is, it’s a unique ingredient, not used in a variety of foods, so I always end up buying a half-gallon and guiltily throwing out 3/4 of it.

Thankfully, I won’t have this problem anymore!

Making buttermilk is SO easy and fast, and only has two simple ingredients.

Here’s how to make it:

  1. Combine 1 tbsp of vinegar (or lemon juice) with 1 cup of milk
  2. Let sit for 5-10 minutes, until milk curdles

Once it is ready, it will have a thicker consistency.

So easy, right?

I was thrilled to make some delicious buttermilk pancakes for breakfast with this simple trick!
