How to Make Sour Cream From Scratch


1 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup sour cream or homemade buttermilk (white vinegar will work)

In a screw-top jar, or mason jar with lid, combine the heavy cream and sour cream (or buttermilk). Shake the ingredients up a bit to thoroughly mix and let stand, covered, at room temperature for about 24 hours or until it becomes very thick.

You can store your sour cream in the refrigerator in the original jar you mixed it in (or use some other resealable container) for up to one week.

Make sure that your sour cream is well chilled before using. If you want to make a lighter sour cream, substitute whole milk for 1/2 cup of the heavy cream.

Sour Cream Sauce

1 cup sour cream
1 tsp sea salt (not table salt)
1 TBS minced green onion tops 
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper, or to taste
pinch black pepper

Mix items together and store in a covered container in the refrigerator.  

Recipe Note

To drizzle:  thin this down with a tablespoon of milk and go from there.  If you want it spicier just add more cayenne pepper.

Serve on baked potatoes, burritos, enchiladas, tacos or anything else you would top with sour cream.
