Homemade Creme Fraiche

Fine Cooking Magazine

This creme fraiche isn't as thick as the commercial product, but it tastes terrific. We developed this recipe using ultra-pasteurized heavy cream because it's most widely available. If you can find regular pasteurized heavy cream, use it: Your results will likely be thicker. Also, if it's a warm day, the cream may thicken in a shorter amount of time.
