Instead of using liquid buttermilk I recommend powder buttermilk . Just follow the directions on the can to make aliquid . This is much better than store brought liquid buttermilk and you can put the powder buttermilk in the freezer so you will always have buttermilk on hand. You can also use Kiefer .
