Handy Substitute for Buttermilk

Color me surprised that I could not find whole buttermilk at any supermarket within 10 miles of my home at New Year's. It's one percent or nothing in the suburbs. So I'm quite pleased that the LA Times Test Kitchen has provided a work-around when buttermilk is called for and not available in your kitchen.
If you have a recipe that calls for buttermilk but don't have any on hand, you can improvise. Whisk 1 cup of milk with a tablespoon of lemon juice or vinegar (cider or white) and set the mixture aside for several minutes until it begins to curdle. Then use as needed.
