How to make Creme Fraiche

ooohhh--aaahhhh! Hold your applause! It is really only fermented milk.

Next time you might find yourself sitting in a fancy French restaurant, and the waiter attempts to sell you a $45 dish because of the special creme fraiche sauce ... you can giggle knowing it's just spoiled milk.

A popular ingredient that is used in many dishes that I thought would be difficult to make, it actually quiet easy. Two ingredients - one step - viola!


  • 1 cup of of whipping cream
  • 2 Tbl. of buttermilk
  1. Combine the two ingredients into a glass jar. 
  2. Cover and let sit at room temperature for 12-24 hours.
  3. Stir well and the refrigerate. It can be stored for up to 10 days.
I will be sharing a great recipe that I used creme fraiche in tomorrow!
