No need to purchase expensive ready-made Creme Fraiche. This recipe couldn't be easier and the result is outstanding. I've used it for years.

How to Make Sour Cream Creme Fraiche


  1. Whisk sour cream and heavy cream together in a medium size non-reactive bowl.
  2. Transfer mixture to a non-reactive container and cover. I use a mason jar. Let sit out in a warm spot away from direct sunlight for 12 hours.
  3. After 12 hours, stir the mixture with a wooden spoon. Refrigerate for an additional 24 hours. Will keep for up to two weeks in the fridge.
