I was given this recipe. I tried putting it in the oven with the light on. But have found that if I just put it on the counter and forget it, it is awesome. I even double the recipe. Last one I put in 2 Tablespoons of sour cream and 2 of yogurt, as I was out of buttermilk. It worked well. I believe the flavor is maybe a little more mild than with buttermilk. Love a dollop on fruit soups as well as in other dishes.

I've never had this nor have I seen this in a store. It is wonderful! It was really thick after about 18 hours and I refrigerated it in a glass jar. Thanks!

This turned out great! Thanks for the homemade version. It's impossible to find where I live. It really thickened up after I put it in the fridge after the 24 hours. Perfect! Thanks for posting!

This is wonderful. Works with yogurt too. In Mexico it's called Creama Mexicana. It doesn't break in a sauce like sour cream. On strawberries it's incredible and it beats like whipping cream too. Thanks for sharing!!!! Tony

I have never EVER been able to find creme fraiche where I live so I've been forced to skip the recipes that call for it or substitute sour cream. Now I know what it tastes like...nothing like sour cream. This is so simple to make I'll be making it often. The taste is wonderful. Thank you, Sylvie!

I'd never made this before, and only tasted it when it was incorporated into recipes. So easy and SO yummy, makes sour cream taste like a rubbery fake substance. Thanks so much, Ev! Your recipes can always be counted on!
