Jamie, I was wondering if using buttermilk made this way is just as good for soaking chicken in the real stuff for fried chicken? to me it looks to thin to do the job intended. Thank you. 6-6-2014

What your video shows is how to make sour milk, but the texture is not the same. Real buttermilk is thick. What i would like to know is - does real buttermilk make a difference than using thin milk made sour with vinegar or lemon juice? Please respond. Thank you.

Thanks, Jamie! I'm gonna make some Pumpkin Biscuits.....and the recipe calls for buttermilk. I don't have any but I knew you could add vinegar and milk but wasn't sure of the ratio. Thank you so much! Love watching you....and Bobby and, of course, your mom! J'Nell

As I was growing up my mom made Chocolate cakes using this mixture of milk and vinagar. I couldn't remember the amounts till I watched the video. Thank you.

Actually, you should only use fresh lemon juice with a cup of milk to make buttermilk. I'd think that vinegar would make it sour milk ... but what do I know? I don't bake a lot using it. I just know what my grandma told me - she always used lemon juice (and it had to be fresh) & milk if she didn't have the real stuff. Jamie, your work is still excellent! smile

I'm sorry to say that is NOT buttermilk my friend but sour milk. My mother taught me this decades ago for sour milk in many recipes. It is as good as buttermilk in cooking but please don't call it what it isn't. I love the show and thanks for many great ideas.

I was soo glad to see this video...I've always come across recipes I've wanted to try but knew if I bought buttermilk and just needed a cup full the rest would go to waste since my dad. he's the only one in our house that would drink what I didn't use..He loved Buttermilk in a cup with cornbread. Thanks a bunch!!

Hi! Way back in 1952, I took Home Ed class. I learned how to make my own butter milk a long time ago. Great trick. A busy New Englander that loves to bake.

xlnt. so often a recipe calls for buttermilk, and either don't have on hand, or not willing to go to the store and buy a quart for just 1 or 2 cups. Buttermilk is a top rated food to use as a probiotic. not just for baking, enjoy a glass today and everyday!
