I made a sad discovery recently: I don’t actually like the flavor of buttermilk. Or things baked with buttermilk.
I found this out after I made some gorgeous pretzel sticks (which I forgot to photograph.) But there’s just something about the flavor that is… unpleasant. I have no clue how people are able to actually drink the stuff!
So, I guess I’ll be sticking with fake buttermilk for a while. And for those of you who don’t know, that’s actually really easy:
- Take 1 Tbsp of something acidic. (Vinegar, lemon juice, something.)
- Pour it into a 1-cup liquid measure.
- Pour milk up to the 1-cup line.
- Voila, “buttermilk”, that actually tastes ok!
