Homemade Crème fraîche

It's SO EASY to make! Like sheet/ghost Halloween costume easy. 

Sour cream has a fat content of about 20% and may include ingredients like gelatin, rennin, and vegetable enzymes to stabilize it and make it thicker. It has a fat content of about 30% and does not contain any added thickeners. Crème fraîche is thicker, has a richer flavor, and is less tangy than sour cream. 

YIELD:  about 1 cup


1 cup whipping cream

2 tablespoons buttermilk

INSTRUCTIONS: 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.
