The Easiest Way to Make Buttermilk at Home

Buttermilk can be consumed straight, and it can be used in cooking as well. Many desserts require the usage of butter. It is also used in marination, especially of pork and chicken, whereby the lactic acid aids to retain moisture, to tenderize, and allows added savors to infuse throughout the meat. You can find buttermilk in many stores, but the best thing is that you can make it at home. This recipe is very easy and simple and requires just 2 ingredients. Try it!
