Crème Fraiche Recipe

Provided By
Crème fraiche, heavy cream thickened and slightly soured by a bacterial culture, has a nutty, tangy taste and is a delicious addition to many dishes. This do-it-yourself version isn't quite authentic, but it's still very good. It is very easy to make - just be sure to choose an additive with a live bacterial culture
