    One of the most widely used ingredients, milk is often referred to as a 'complete' food…

  • 1 tbsp lemon juice or vinegar

Method

  1. Mix the milk and lemon juice in a jug. Leave at room temperature for 5-10 mins until the milk has thickened slightly. It won’t thicken as much as traditional buttermilk, but it’s a great substitute when making scones, soda bread or pancakes. Don’t worry if the mixture looks curdled or has small white lumps in it, it will be fine once cooked.
