Creme Fraiche Recipe
Use this when you want the tang of crème fraiche, but don’t have any on hand. For a firmer, tangier cream, you can play with the proportions of heavy cream to sour cream.
Start by reversing the amounts (using 3/4 cup sour cream to 1/2 cup heavy cream), then adjust the proportions by adding more heavy cream to suit your taste.
1/2 cup sour cream
3/4 cup cold heavy cream
sugar to taste
1/4 tsp pure vanilla extract
Place the sour cream into a medium bowl. Whip the heavy cream until it hold soft to medium peaks – you don’t want it to be too firm. Scrape down and fold the ingredients together with a rubber spatula.
