Creme Fraiche isn’t always easily available. And I’ve learned it’s an acquired taste at times. When I’m cookijgn or making something of a more dessert type, I typically use mock creme Fraiche.. Not just because of challenges in funding the stuff, but because there is something lovely and luscious about this faux creme Fraiche.
This is the stuff I use as a dressing for fruit salad, or with plain scones now and then. Best of all, it pulls together in a few minutes and will adapt to any flavouring you want! 😊
Here’s what you need:
1 cup of light or non-fat sour cream or be bold and use full fat!
1/4 cup of heavy cream…soemtimes you need a bit more to thin it a bit if you’ve used full fat sour cream
1 smallish pinch of salt
2 tablespoons of lightly packed light brown sugar
Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix thoroughly. You can add a teaspoon of vailla extract, the seeds of a vanilla bean or a teaspoon cinnamon to change it up.
