Though we don't use it a lot, buttermilk is a great addition to recipes for a tangy, tender bite. But rather than buying a whole bottle only to throw most of it out, you can make your own buttermilk using ingredients you most likely always have on hand! Simply pour 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice (or any other acidic fruit juice, such as kiwi) or white vinegar into a liquid measuring cup. Then, pour in enough milk to measure 1 cup. Let the mixture sit until it curdles, 5 to 10 minutes, and start cooking! The only April Fool here will be your taste buds!

Use this homemade buttermilk in pancakes, biscuits, chicken and more. Here are some recipes to get you inspired:
