We're about to change the game with this quick and handy kitchen hack – Homemade Sour Milk or Buttermilk with Lemon Juice

To make sour milk or buttermilk, you only need two simple ingredients (with some options for substitutions), found in any grocery store.

Plain milk: The whole milk serves as the base ingredient for buttermilk. It provides the liquid component and acts as a medium for the other ingredient, lemon juice, to work its magic. The type of milk used will affect the richness and consistency of the resulting buttermilk.

Lemon juice: Lemon juice acts as the acid in this homemade buttermilk recipe. When added to the milk, the citric acid in the lemon juice reacts with the proteins in the milk, causing it to curdle and thicken. This process mimics the fermentation that occurs in traditional buttermilk.

Grab 1 cup milk - make it room temperature if you're planning to bake something with it. Choose any milk you like, but if you're going for the non dairy products route, be ready for a little twist in flavor and texture. Now, the magic happens! Take a tablespoon of lemon juice or tablespoon vinegar and pour it into the fresh milk. Give it a good stir and then leave it be for a little bit of time, around 5-10 minutes. Watch the transformation unfold as the milk curdles and thickens, giving you that tangy goodness we all love.
