Buttermilk substitute [split from LA]

You would probably scoff, but I found that when baking, you can subtitute 1 c whole milk plus 1 T white vinegar or lemon juice.
Luckily I love buttermilk, so when I get a quart, between biscuits, shortcakes, pancakes, other cakes, freshly made ranch and bleu cheese dressings, there's a lot of things to do with that quart.
Haven't seen Bourgeous Bros. buttermilk, and I tend to like Knudsen's, with its bits of butter in it.
