Making your own Creme Fraiche

By: Donna Culpepper

Making your own Creme Fraiche

Creme Fraiche is so easy to make yourself and is a delicious addition to any savory dish-especially Frittatas! It has a sour cream  consistency but a milder, more decadent flavor.  The name alone will have your guests believing you are a culinary pro!

Combine 1 cup whipping cream and 2 tablespoons buttermilk in a glass container.  Cover and let stand at room temperature (about 70°F) from 8 to 24 hours, or until very thick.  Stir well before covering and refrigerate up to 10 days.  I find it generally takes closer to the 24 hours to get it nice and thick so you may have to  play around with time.  I also leave the lid partially open and keep in a warm place. You may also cut the time in half if you are looking for a more, sauce like consistency. 

Add any combination of fresh herbs you have on hand. I particularly love fresh tarragon, parsley and dill. Try adding lemon zest-it is the secret ingredient that makes the flavors come really come alive!  

I hope you enjoy-Bon Appetit!
