Chef John's Creme Fraiche
November 10, 2014

I've been making creme fraiche using this method for almost 20 years. Easy peasy and SO tasty. It's also good made with Brown Cow yogurt instead of buttermilk (the live cultures are important). This does work with ultra pasteurized cream, I've done it more than once when ultra pasteurized was all I could find. You may need more buttermilk/yogurt or a little more time for it to culture.
