Description

This is so easy to make at home!

Ingredients

2 cups
heavy cream
1/4 cup
buttermilk, cultured

Instructions

In a quart jar or container, mix the buttermilk and cream.

Stir or shake well.  Cover and let set at room temperature until thick.  (This will take 12-24 hours depending on the temperature.  It sets up faster in a warmer place.)  When cream is thick, it’s done and will keep in the refrigerator for at least 2 weeks. 
 

Notes

Crème fraîche can be used anywhere you’d use sour cream and in many other recipes, sweet or savory. It’s also delicious on its own as a topping for fruit, pie, soup or burritos.  We hope you’ll enjoy this lovely and simple French treat.
