I've been doing this for a long time. Works well each time. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Okay, I was hoping Emeril would not let me down. I followed recipe exact, put the timer on for 15 min. No curdling. Past 15 min still no curdling. I needed this for my buttermilk cornbread. I went ahead and used it, have it in the oven now. I will update after cornbread is done. Only 1 star because did not curdle like it said. item not reviewed by moderator and published

Thanks, Emeril! I just used this recipe to make my own ricotta cheese, and it turned out heavenly. For reviewers who expect this to be actual homemade buttermilk, maybe the title is a tad misleading. If you want a more real deal, churn heavy cream into butter and use the leftover liquid. This is a *substitute* buttermilk, darn handy when you don't have heavy cream on hand or don't feel like making butter. This way is cheaper, too, and works great in all sorts of cooking/baking applications. If you're looking to chug it down straight as a beverage, however, this isn't the recipe for you. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is a great recipe... if you do not have buttermilk available. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I did not have buttermilk for a biscuit recipe, so I found this, and -- everything seems to have come out quite perfectly! Thank you, Emeril, for the wonderful recipe :) item not reviewed by moderator and published
well sorry, but this is definitely no buttermilk. As this word contains 'butter' it has something to do with 'butter'. It is a leftover from the butter production. The taste is pretty different to that product I can get when I follow this recipe, I only get soured milk.... But as the Americans use 'butter'milk only for cooking, this might fulfill their needs. What a petty - they miss a really healthy drink, excellent for beauty and very low in calories. Rich of minerals.... and a great taste. item not reviewed by moderator and published

Buttermilk snob. lol item not reviewed by moderator and published
wow that was unnecessary item not reviewed by moderator and published
Agreed this is not for drinking. It has nothing to do with being an American. It's just a substitute for cooking with buttermilk. item not reviewed by moderator and published
