homemade essentials: organic sour cream

Recipe by
Andy Anderson !

This is not the kind of recipe you make on the spur of the moment. For example, say you need some buttermilk, but you do not have any; however, you do have milk and some lemon juice. You mix them together and 5-minutes later, BANG, buttermilk. In this recipe, you add the ingredients and not 5-minutes, but two long days later you have sour cream… really, really, good sour cream. You make this recipe because you plan ahead. So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.
