Head to the local weekend markets!

When heavy cream is churned into butter, it separates into two: butterfat (which is then processed into butter) and buttermilk. Buttermilk is the liquid left behind after the churning process. It’s lightly acidic, which is good for many things in the kitchen and the reason why it is a staple ingredient in many homes.

When it comes to baking, the acidity in the buttermilk reacts with your leavening agents like baking soda and baking powder and gives your cakes and pancakes a good, light, fluffy rise. Buttermilk is also a popular ingredient for marinating meats (buttermilk fried chicken, anyone?) because it has the capability to tenderize cuts of meat without toughening them up from being too acidic.

Soaking chicken in buttermilk and double-dredging it in flavorful breading takes this fried chicken recipe to the next level!


It’s easy to make your own buttermilk substitute at home (this video will teach you how), but you can make your way to the local weekend markets in Manila to get your week’s worth of buttermilk. Rizal Dairy Farms sells bottles of buttermilk in three places: Market Market in BGC daily from  9 a.m. to 9 p.m., the Salcedo Saturday Market in Makati on Saturdays from 6 a.m. to 1 p.m, and the SIDCOR Sunday Market on Sundays from 6 a.m. to 1 p.m.


Alternatively, check the refrigerated dairy aisle of the nearest Rustan's Marketplace branch near you! Stock up if you're a regular buttermilk user because their stocks can run out pretty quickly. 


Chicken tip: Marinating the chicken pieces in buttermilk or yogurt is the key to juicy fried chicken.
