I love this. I make this during the week when I am going to have baked potatoes or need sour cream. It is sooooo easy. I always forget that carton of sour cream that gets pushed to the back of the frig. You can double this if you need more. I always have the ingredients. Read More

It didn't thicken up. Any suggestions? I live in Chile and have never found buttermilk I see that is the most common ingredient. Read More

This is a version of creme fraiche that is very close to the type I find here in Belgium. It s quite runny and has a less sour taste than the American version. I used homemade yogurt which has a light flavor and no thickeners. Thank you for the recipe. Read More
