Substituting for buttermilk in a pinch

Many recipes call for buttermilk. It is a sour and delicious by-product of making butter! Well, you can make a great substitute if you can’t get fresh buttermilk, which, unless you live by a farm or by an awesome farmer’s market, can be hard to come by. Just combine 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar with 1 cup milk, stir, and use in your recipe immediately. You can substitute other types of vinegars but cider vinegars (coconut cider is a good one!) work best. In the case of blueberry lemon pancakes, you can use lemon flavored aged white balsamic vinegar for a distinct and remarkable flavor.
