How to make buttermilk with easy instructions and some recipes for homemade buttermilk.

Buttermilk is a by-product that you get when learning how to make butter. However, when you examine it carefully, it is nowhere near the thick white buttermilk that you can buy from the local store. This is because this buttermilk has had a culture added to it, and it is much thicker than what is left behind after making butter.

However, once you start making your own buttermilk at home, you will realize that what you have made is nothing like the store-bought product either! Instead you will have a far better product that is rich in taste and far superior to what you can buy.

STEP 1: HOW TO MAKE BUTTERMILK – BRING MILK TO ROOM TEMPERATURE

Take your whole milk out that you have bought from the store, or, if you are lucky enough, your own raw milk, and let it sit on the counter in your kitchen for an hour or two. This will bring the milk to room temperature, before the next stage.

STEP 2: HOW TO MAKE BUTTERMILK – ADD THE CULTURE

Take 1 cup of the milk and add either 1 tablespoon of lemon juice, or 1 tablespoon of white vinegar,or 2 tablespoons cream of tarter. Stir through well and leave for 15 minutes or so, until the milk starts to curdle.

STEP 3: HOW TO MAKE BUTTERMILK – BOTTLE AND REFRIGERATE!

Either use straightaway, stirring before drinking, or bottle and place in the fridge. Your buttermilk will keep for a week.
