DIY: Crème Fraîche

Food

What do you do when you can’t find something you need for a recipe in the grocery store? Search the internet! And that’s exactly what I did when I found I needed crème fraîche for my Jägerschnitzel recipe but couldn’t find it in my local grocery store. Luckily, I found a recipe for a substitution.

So it’s not exactly the same. But I was very pleased with how it worked in the Jägerschnitzel sauce so I can’t really complain. Not to mention with instructions like: take 1 pint of heavy cream and add 2 tablespoons of buttermilk — it can’t get much easier. Make sure you use a non-reactive container and let the mixture sit for at least twelve hours before using.

And that’s it. Really. Easy!

Apparently it’s supposed to thicken up overnight. I didn’t notice much of a difference but I did take some before and after photos.
