Basically you get a container and put 1 part buttermilk in. Then put 3 parts milk. Shake it and leave it on your counter for 24 hours. After 24 hours shake it again and if it is thick and clumpy, the cultures of the buttermilk have spread and created more buttermilk. Now store your buttermilk in the fridge and use it for recipes! Always keep 1 part in your container so you can continue replenishing the buttermilk using the same instructions.
I used this quart jar, so I put 1 cup of buttermilk and followed it with 3 cups of milk.
It's so nice to always have buttermilk on hand for pancakes and waffles!
Have any of you ever made your own buttermilk?
