Homemade Buttermilk or Non-Dairy Buttermilk
If you don't have buttermilk, it's easy to make a substitute. Mix 1 tbsp (15 mL) lemon juice or white (or cider) vinegar into 1 cup (250 mL) milk. Let stand for at least 15 minutes before using, to allow the milk to curdle. Any extra can be stored in the refrigerator for the same amount of time as the milk from which it was made.
Non-dairy buttermilk may made in the same manner as the homemade buttermilk substitute above. Simple mix the lemon juice or vinegar with an equal amount of any variety of non-dairy milk (e.g., rice, soy, hemp, almond).
