I can't locate buttermilk. Is there something I can substitute?

Alejandra - from San Juan, Puerto Rico

There are a number of substitutions for buttermilk. To one cup milk, add 1-1/2 tablespoons lemon juice or 4 teaspoons cider vinegar. You could also use a combination of 2/3 cup plain yogurt and 1/3 cup milk.
