obi1kenobi10, Jun 21, 10:25pm
Where can I buy this?We dont have it in our supermarkets, is there a specialty store I can get it from?Or should I just combine, butter and milk?

its in most supermarkets in the chiller (normally by the yogurt or cheeses) its in a yellow 500ml carton.

And butter milk is not butter and milk.. its a cultured milk.. soured in the same way yogurt is.

Yes Pam.....Tararua is correct.

Making a recipe that calls for buttermilk? Use this simple substitute, and you won't need to buy any:

•Milk (just under one cup)
•1 Tablespoon white vinegar or lemon juice

1. Place a Tablespoon of white vinegar or lemon juice in a liquid measuring cup.

2. Add enough milk to bring the liquid up to the one-cup line.

3. Let stand for five minute. Then, use as much as your recipe calls for.

can you use low fat milk or does it need to be blue top?

Lol butter and milk, do you live in the country, its normally with the plain milk

can substitue plain unsweetened yoghurt for buttermilk as well.
True buttermilk is actually very thin and watery as it is a by product of making butter.

wow sounds fattening. everytime i make something for the first time i end up cutting down on the batter the next time i attempt to make it

an easy simple way, and you only need ever buy 1 carton of buttermilk. ( make sure it's cultured buttermilk and not nearing it's' use by' date) If you have a yoghurt maker, pour a cup of buttermilk into container, top up with normal milk and leave 12 hours, then refrigerate, you now have 1 litre of buttermilk, when getting low again, repeat process !

Pop that same culture into cream and you get Creme Fraiche
