A kitchen trick for buttermilk

Have you ever been in the middle of making a recipe that calls for buttermilk and you don't have any? ell there is an easy kitchen trick where you can make your own substitute really easily!

Take 1 cup of milk and either one tablespoon of white vinegar or lemon juice
Place the vinegar or lemon juice in the bottle of a measuring cup and add the milk up to the one cup line and let stand for five minutes.  And there you go -- you have a perfect buttermilk substitute and it really works!

There is also another way to actually make buttermilk if you have heavy cream.  Fill a jar halfway with heavy cream (like a canning jar)  Start shaking back and forth until the cream thickens and eventually turn into whipped cream.  Keep shaking untilthe whipped cream turns into a yellow glob (butter) and seperate liiquid (butter milk)

Pour the butter milk out of the jar and use it anytime you need buttermilk!
