🥄 Expert Tips and Storage

Store your DIY ranch powder in the fridge for up to 3-5 months. Just give it a shake or stir and measure the way you would in any recipe.

  • You can adjust the chives and dill in the recipe to fit your liking. I like to do a bit less on chives as it can be strong.
  • I personally used freeze-dried chives, parsley, and dill. You can use dried as well.
  • The buttermilk powder can be found in the baking aisle and in others, it will be by the powdered milk.
