Buttermilk powder?

I was watching Americas Test Kitchen and they were making waffles. Instead of buying buttermilk, they used buttermilk powder! They said its real buttermilk, dehydrated. He also said the stuff in the store is not REAL buttermilk. I have never bought buttermilk, so Ive never read the label. Anyway...anyone ever use the powder? I guess it keeps for near a year in the fridge!

Karen, thats what I have been doing. Milk and vinegar. But if I use this I will get a different taste than just the milk/vinegar right? Like say in biscuits? Im kind of hoping for a more buttermilky taste...is there such a thing, lol!?
And my waffle maker isnt as fancy as the one they use, haha! It only has one setting....ON. But yeah it really made me crave waffles!

Oh! I never thought about ranch dressing. I love ranch dressing. I will have to give that a shot!
Speaking of salad dressing, I am getting ready to try a copycat recipe of Olive Gardens salad dressing...I love thier dressing for some reason. So I cant wait to try this recipe.

That would be awesome to be able to make my own really really good ranch dressing. Why is it that the ranch dressing in the restaurants taste better than any bottled brand on the shelf. Most of these places cant be making thier own can they...

Speaking of homemade salad dressing, a good friend of mine gave me a great and simple recipe for French Dressing years ago. I just made it again the other day, and I love it, although I cut the sugar amt. in half. I'll post it under recipes soon.
