Great on tacos, a garnishment for Cuban or Mexican soups...southwestern dishes, etc. Can swap out fraiche with sour cream or yogurt, just a different taste. A spin on Bobby Flay's recipe. Time does not include making the Creme Fraiche...can use store-bought.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place the cumin in a small saute pan over medium heat. Toast until lightly golden brown. Place in a small bowl. Stir in the creme fraiche and season with salt and pepper, to taste.
  2. To make creme fraiche: Place buttermilk and heavy cream in a sterilized jar. Shake slightly to combine ingredients. Keep in warm place for 12-36 hours until thickened.
