    Hello there, love your recipes. I want to ask what would be the translated version of “buttermilk” to Spanish, Suero de Leche??

    Hola Lisany!
    La verdad no se como se dice buttermilk en Espanol. Tengo un video de como se prepara esto. Simplemente es leche cortada con vinagre blanco o jugo de limon. I am sorry!
