substitute ingredients

Can I substitute the non fat buttermilk and reduced fat sour cream for raw full fat versions?

Hello, Elaine. That is what we call chef’s preference. Enjoy!

this sounds like i could

this sounds like i could learn to like buttermilk in something other than cornbread and biscuits! it occurs to me though that by adding lemon juice and/or sour cream, you could use skim milk and voila! you've made buttermilk.
