Make your own rich and delicious crème fraiche with this culture from Crafty Cultures – it’s simple and healthy too because you can use organic or hormone-free cream. This direct-set starter culture activates at room temperature to create true crème fraiche which is milder in flavour than sour cream and contains more fat, giving it a divinely thick, creamy texture. Join the culture of making homemade artisan cultured foods and dollop your own divine homemade crème fraiche on your spuds and desserts.
