How to Make Buttermilk

Print This Page

When you learn how to make buttermilk, you will never have to buy ready-made buttermilk again.
And, homemade will save you money!

Since we moved to the Philippines 10 years ago, and found that buttermilk was not sold here; I simply made peace with that reality.
I mean, what could I do about it, right?
It hadn't even occurred to me that I could make it easily. I thought it would certainly be a hard process, so we did without.

Now folks, I consider myself to be more than a novice cook, and I thought that was truth.

I was so wrong!! :) I don't know how I missed this easy method of making buttermilk.

We don't drink buttermilk, so I can't promise this will make yummy buttermilk for drinking, but it makes perfectly wonderful buttermilk for cooking & baking.
And, it's so much less expensive than store-bought.
You probably have all the ingredients in your fridge & pantry right now.

Milk & white vinegar. That's it! :)


To every 1 cup of regular milk (1% or 2%), add 1 Tablespoon of regular white vinegar.
Let it sit for 10 minutes before using. It will bubble & do its magic right before your eyes :)
So simple, right?!
