Creme Fraiche

Creme Fraiche


  • 1 cup heavy cream (whipping cream)
  • 2 Tablespoons buttermilk


Crème Fraiche is a thick cream used in sauces, soups and as a condiment for fresh fruit. Because this recipe needs to sit for 8-24 hours, plan ahead if making this.


Combine cream and buttermilk in a glass jar. Cover and let stand at room temperature (about 70 degrees F) for 8 to 24 hours, or until thickened.
Stir well and refrigerate. Use within 10 days.

~ Use as a thickener for soups or sauces.
~ Spoon over fresh fruits, puddings or warm cobblers.
~ Can be used in boiled recipes. Will not curdle.
