How to make it

  • Leave raw cream at room temp for a day. That's it.
  • If you don't bake or cook a lot, or if you are impatient, you can add a teaspoon of buttermilk (or yogurt for that matter) to speed the process.
  • Once clotted and thick, refrigerate.

    I use a recipe for creme fraiche I saw once which calls for one part heavy cream and one part sour cream. let it sit out for a while for a couple of hours (or not). Even simpler, and I think it is a good substitute. I used to cook in France.

    Thanks for sharing. I like to top my Chocolate Pudding Cake with a dollop of creme fraiche! Gives it a spark. :)
