How to make cream fraiche

Creme fraiche is the French cream that is rich tasting. Creme fraiche is cultured and unpasteurized an has a slightly lemon flavour.

It can be used fresh on desserts and it can also be cooked as it will not curdle with heat.

It can be used as a sour cream and is great in sauces. Many French recipes use crème fraiche as a base for these.

Crème fraiche is not as thick as cream and has a higher butterfat content.

Making creme fraiche isn't difficult, but it does take time.
