Full Answer

Some recipes call specifically for soured milk, but sour milk is also a good substitute for buttermilk. Adding vinegar or lemon juice to milk affects the taste and increases the acidity, bringing the flavor and chemical composition close to buttermilk. After souring milk, use it right away, and discard any leftover milk. Soured milk is not intended to be a beverage.

    Is it safe to eat sour cream after the expiration date?

    A:

    Sour cream may be safe to eat after the expiration date passes, but is ideally discarded after the expiration date since that date indicates the last date food or beverages are safe to consume. The expiration date on foods falls into the broader category of food labeling. The expiration date indicates the maximum date foods stay fresh; eating foods past expiration dates may pose health and safety risks, including dairy products like sour cream and milk.
