Making your own Buttermilk

I am posting this recipe early………… I will be part of a Blog Hop Friday and Saturday. Today, we are going to learn to make Buttermilk. Yes, you can go out and buy it but do you know how old that bottle is?

Making BUTTERMILK is not hard. I use two ways…………depending upon how much of a hurry I am in.

#1.)  To make on cup buttermilk:

Use 3/4 of a cup of  milk………….add 1/4 cup lemon juice. Stir well, use immediately.

#2.)  To make cultured buttermilk:

1 qt. whole milk

2T. buttermilk

Warm the milk to 72 degrees. Stir in the cultured buttermilk(from a previous batch). Allow mixture to set, covered, at room temperature for 12 hours or more. When thick, refridgerate.

I use buttermilk in alot of recipes…………….next week, we will make Buttermilk Cornmeal Muffins. They are yummmy!

Join me the next couple of days for the Independence Day Blog Hop!
