Substitutes for Buttermilk and Half & Half

Have you ever wanted to make a recipe and found that you were missing an ingredient? It seems like the 2 ingredients I am always short are Buttermilk and Half & Half. It is very easy to substitute both of these ingredients.

To make 1 cup of Buttermilk: Add 1 tablespoon of lemon juice or vinegar to 1 cup of milk. Let it sit for 5 minutes.

Canned Evaporated Milk can be substituted for Half & Half or Cream in a recipe.

  1. Great ideas! I've used that substitution for buttermilk, but I've never seen a substitution for half and half or cream. It's convenient, too, because the evaporated milk isn't perishable.

  2. Thanks for these tips. I have recently needed to find a substitute for buttermilk, now I know exactly what to do.
