Homemade Creme Fraiche

So many recipes call for Creme Fraiche but I never knew exactly what it was.  Now, I do and so do you!  It’s quite simple but if you don’t have buttermilk on hand, check out my recipe, Homemade Buttermilk (that’s quite easy to prepare, as well).




  • 1 Cup heavy cream
  • 2 Tbls buttermilk
  • Combine together and pour into a mason jar (or you can use a spaghetti sauce jar).
  • Store in a warm place and let it sit until thickened but still pourable, about 12-16 hours.
  • Store in the refrigerator for up to a week.


I welcome your feedback and comments, below.  Have a question or specific recipe request?  I’ll be happy to research and find an answer.
