MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 24, 2008

"To my dismay, when I went to open my new bottle of buttermilk, I had picked up skim milk by mistake. So I tried out the powdered buttermilk I had and it worked great! You mix the powder in with the dry ingredients and use warm water for the moisture in the recipe."
