buttermilk and sour cream from scratch

BUTTERMILK AND SOUR CREAM FROM SCRATCH

don’t have buttermilk in the pantry? get milk and add some lemon juice, stir and let sit for 5 minutes….for one cup of buttermilk you need, use one cup of milk and add about  a teaspoon of lemon juice.

don’t have sour cream handy? especially for those who do not live in the US (in Italy for example sour cream is hard to find)… to make one cup of sour cream: put half  a cup of cream (light cooking cream in the US  is fine, in Italy  called “panna da cucina” or cooking cream) and half  a cup of white yogurt, add a tablespoon of lemon juice, stir and put in the refrigerator for an hour….
