Homemade Crème Fraiche

Course Sauce
Servings 1 cup


  • 1 cup organic heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons plain whole milk yogurt or buttermilk I use yogurt


  • Stir the cream and yogurt or buttermilk together in a bowl. Cover and let sit out on your kitchen counter for 12-24 hours until it reaches desired consistency. This will depend upon how warm your kitchen is – the warmer it is, the quicker it will thicken. Store it in your fridge and start dolloping. It will keep for a few weeks.
