For a while now, I have been learning about making things from scratch. So far, I have mastered cutting out purchasing biscuits, bread, desserts, chocolate syrup, caramel sauce, any salad dressing, pizzas, taco seasoning mix, fajita mix, and bagged chicken nuggets.
I can now add to my growing number of homemade prepackaged items homemade buttermilk and sweetened condensed milk.
First off I have to tell you that I was very skeptical at first about trying to make things homemade, because well…I thought it would just be to time consuming. But what I have found out is that I have plenty of time to make these things while I am cooking, if I just do it! I have learned that these things are so much better for me because as I have read on other blogs, I know what is going in my food.
Here is the recipe for Homemade buttermilk:
- 1 tbsp vinegar or lemon juice
- 1/3 cup nonfat powdered milk
- 1 cup water
- Allow it to set at room temperature for about 15 minutes
I love how easy this is to make. No longer do I need to buy that huge carton of buttermilk. To me, that is a waste of money. I don't use that much of it, and it is much simpler to purchase milk and only make what I need.
Another great homemade recipe you might find interesting is my homemade sweetened condensed milk. Tastes SO much better than the canned stuff!
