How to Make Buttermilk in 2019 (UPDATED)
What is Buttermilk?
Traditionally, buttermilk was the leftover liquid from churning cream to make butter. This is now referred to as traditional buttermilk.
The buttermilk that you buy in the grocery stores is now a cultured buttermilk, which is produced by adding cultures to milk during the fermentation process to simulate the lactic acid that would naturally occur in traditional buttermilk.
Measure the milk into a jug
Stir in lemon juice or vinegar into the milk. Stir to combine. Let sit for 30 minutes at room temperature until the milk begins to curdle and becomes acidic.
Use in place of buttermilk in the recipe as it calls for. And if you don’t use it straight away store it in the fridge for up to 3 days.
Dairy-Free and Vegan Buttermilk Substitute
You can now enjoy dairy-free buttermilk in so many of your recipes. This is perfect for those who have dairy allergies or who follow a vegan diet and lifestyle. To make dairy-free buttermilk substitute, you simple use your favorite non-dairy milk such as soy, coconut, almond, rice or oat milk in place of the milk called for in the recipe! It’s that easy!
