Crème Fraiche Starter Culture
Product Review (submitted on August 23, 2012):
I loved the results of using this starter on locally produced heavy cream from grass-fed cows. The creme fraiche that it made tasted like the best sour cream ever, and cooking with it is a dream--it is more stable than commercial sour cream and it has a delicately tangy flavor that is delicious as a topping or in sauces.
I do wish I could use this to serially culture creme fraiche--but I suppose I will get over it. That's why I gave it lower marks on value.
What is really nice, though, is once creme fraiche has been made--you can make cultured butter like I did today and it is to die for. And so much less expensive than store bought cultured butter....
