Crème fraîche, pronounced ‘krem fresh’, is a thick, smooth soured cream with a rich, velvety texture and a nutty tangy taste.
Crème fraîche can be found in specialty food stores or you can make your own using this simple recipe: Add 1 cup organic whipping cream and 2 tablespoons organic buttermilk to a glass jar. Cover and shake to combine. Let stand at room temperature (about 70 degrees F.) for 8 to 24 hours, or until thickened. Stir well and refrigerate. Use within 10 days.
Selecting and Storing Crème Fraîche
Crème fraîche will keep in the refrigerator for about 7-10 days.
