It is difficult to buy buttermilk where I live. What can I use as a substitute?

Measure out milk and put in 1 teaspoon lemon juice or 1 teaspoon vinegar if that's for baking; it wouldn't do for salad dressing or drinking.

One recipe I have uses buttermilk. I always just add 2 Tbsp of vinegar to the milk.

If for cooking or baking: 1 cup buttermilk = 1 cup plain yogurt

Take 1 cup of milk and 2-3 Tsp. of vinegar or lemon juice or cream of tartar after about 15 minutes it suppose to curdle. Mix again and use.

To make pretend buttermilk, add 1-3/4 tablespoons of cream of tartar to a cup of milk. Or add a tablespoon of lemon juice or white vinegar to a cup of milk and let it stand for 5 to 10 minutes. In many baking recipes, you can also just use plain yogurt or sour cream instead of buttermilk.

There is powdered buttermilk sold in the baking section of the store. You might check to see if your store has it, if not there, ask the manager to stock it.

Add 2 Tbsp. lemon juice or white vinegar to the milk and let stand for a while, bit more juice/vinegar can be added, it also serves as an extra rising agent.
