Tips and substitutions:
• If you don’t have buttermilk on hand when you need it for baking, use this easy substitute: For each cup of buttermilk,
place one tablespoon of lemon juice or vinegar in a glass measuring cup and add enough cold milk to equal one cup; stir and let stand for five minutes before using.

• Substitute any fresh or frozen berries, including Montana huckleberries, blackberries, or raspberries.
