 This recipe calls for buttermilk but if you don’t have any in the kitchen it is easy to make your own for this recipe.

For the past few years, I’ve been using this shortcut to make delicious tasting buttermilk that can be used for baking and cooking.  Adding fresh lemon juice or white vinegar to the milk will make a nice buttermilk substitute.  Simply pour milk into a bowl, and add a tablespoon of lemon or white vinegar.  Allow the mixture to sit together for at least 5 minutes before using in a recipe.  To read more about this, you can follow this link to get the full directions here.
