Traditional Buttermilk – Traditional buttermilk can be made by using buttermilk as a byproduct. The ingredients you need to make it are:
Heavy cream or Full-fat Milk
It is possible to culture buttermilk as a starter.
Pour in the heavy milk or cream.
In the jar add 1 to 2 tablespoons (or less) of cultured Buttermilk. This starter culture helps the milk ferment.
Be sure to gently stir in the buttermilk starter.
The jar can be covered with plastic wrap or a soft cloth. A rubber band, or lid will secure the container.
Letting the mixture ferment for up to 48 hours at room-temperature is recommended. The longer you ferment it, the tangier your buttermilk will get.
Refrigerate buttermilk if you want to stop fermentation.
It’s time to put your homemade buttermilk into action!
Method: Use Lemon Juice or Vinegar. If you are unable to get access to cultured milk, you may use vinegar or lemon as an alternative. Here’s how:
Lemon juice and white vinegar
Pour 1 cup milk into the bowl.
Add 1 tablespoon vinegar or lemon to the milk.
Mixture should be gently stirred and allowed to rest for 5-10minutes. The acid in the mixture will cause it to curdle.
After resting, you can use your buttermilk-substitute.
Note: This method can create a similar taste to buttermilk but may not contain the same amount of complex flavors.
Conclusion: Homemade buttermilk has a unique taste and texture that you can enjoy in your favorite recipes. Either you use the traditional cultured method of buttermilk, or the vinegar/lemon juice method will produce good results. Test out homemade buttermilk with recipes such as biscuits and dressings.
