Crème fraîche - a recipe for thick, slightly sour and creamy cream. Crème fraîche, French soured cream

What is Crème Fraîche - creme fraiche (pronounced: cream fresz)? Crème fraîche is French cream - slightly sour, thick and wonderfully creamy.

The crème fraîche recipe is incredibly easy to make at home. All we need to make crème fraîche is cream, buttermilk and a little patience. Just combine heavy cream with a small amount of buttermilk and leave at room temperature for about 12 - 24 hours. Then put the cream in the fridge, preferably overnight, where it cools down well and thickens even more.
