How to Make Condiment Essentials: Homemade Sour Cream
- If, after 24-hours, the sour cream is not thick, you can leave it on the countertop for another 24 hours. However, after that time, if it still has not thickened, then something went wrong, In most cases it will be due to a problem with the buttermilk, and the generation of lactic acid. It is a rare occurrence; however, it does happen occasionally.
- Cost of Homemade:
An eight ounce container of store-bought sour cream costs: $1.69.
Eight ounces of heavy cream costs: $0.99 cents
4 ounces of buttermilk costs: $0.20 cents.
Total cost of homemade: $1.19
So, not only is homemade cheaper, it taste better, and contains no unwanted chemicals.
Sounds like a winner to me :-)
