25 Secrets Every Southern Cook Should Know

14. Buy Buttermilk. Buttermilk makes everything better, from cornbread to fried chicken to piecrust.

Use Buttermilk:

  •  Instead of ice water for a tender, flaky piecrust.
  • To marinate chicken or pork. Not only does it help tenderize the meat; it also adds a tangy flavor and a touch of sweetness.
  • In bread, muffins, and biscuits to add flakiness. Be sure to shake the buttermilk before

In a pinch, you can make your own buttermilk. Simply stir together 1 cup whole milk and 
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice. Let stand 10 minutes before using.
