You can make creme fraiche at home with just 2 ingredients! This rich French version of sour cream is perfect for creamy sauces and dolloping soups.
- 1 tablespoon plain yogurt
- 1 cup heavy whipping cream
- Place the ingredients in a clean glass container with a cover, and let them sit in a warm area for 24 hours, until it thickens (the bacteria in the yogurt ferments the cream and causes it to thicken).
- Uncover and stir. If it’s not thick, let stand for a few more hours. When it’s ready, place the mixture in the refrigerator, where it will continue to thicken. It stores for up to 2 weeks.
