NO NEED TO BUY BUTTERMILK

Updated: Sep 21, 2019


Making your own buttermilk is so easy it is almost not even worth a post! But then again, it is.  


So, buy yourself some good quality full fat buttermilk. Not the fat free or low fat kind, yuck.


Then: Use it! Yes, consume all but the last ­1 cup. Pour that last 1 cup of buttermilk into a glass container. I use a quart mason jar. 


Finish filling up your jar with WHOLE sweet milk.  Again, not the watered down 2 percent or skimmed stuff.  If has to be whole milk.  Here comes the hard part... walk away.  I set mine on the counter with a paper towel laying over the top.  


The first jar may take a couple of days to actually ferment, but after your first batch, the rest usually ferment overnight.  Once the sweet milk is fermented, pop a top on it, and put it in the fridge.  It's really is just that easy.  


Why do I make my own buttermilk? A couple reasons why. Making my own ensures I always have buttermilk in my fridge for biscuit baking. But mainly I make my own buttermilk because a quart of buttermilk is more expensive than a gallon of sweet milk. It makes economical sense to save your pennies and make your own. I have not bought buttermilk in a long time now.  Just like with the original batch, once you have used it down to a cup or so, repeat the process.
