You might have noticed whenever I make a recipe that calls for buttermilk (such as yesterdays recipe for Banana Layer Cake)- I always use Powdered Buttermilk. I use powdered buttermilk because whenever I used to buy regular buttermilk in a carton I never used it up before it would go bad. So I finally saw in the baking isle next to the powdered milk....powdered buttermilk. I have been using it every since and I really like it. I haven't found that it alters the taste of any of my recipes. Four tablespoons of the powder makes 1 cup buttermilk. You store it in the refrigerator after opening. It lasts quite a long time. I can't remember how long it takes me to go through that little canister but I know it is quite a long time - at least 6 months. The picture above of course is the one I get but I am sure there are other brands. I wish I had known about it years ago. I just found it about 3 years ago.
