Re: Creme Fraiche Question

let me ask a silly question

I never used crème fraiche ............ reading the procedure to make it makes me think why not yogurth, I suppose crème fraiche is sour and yogurth is sour, as well as thick, yogurth lasts a week in the fridge, is not all that fat as cream

wink  wink  wink  roll

I go and sit there at the bottom of the classroom in the stubborn silly ass annoying students bench and wait for an answer oops

Re: Creme Fraiche Question

We never had an actual "bench" but I certainly ended up in our versions of it more times than I wish to remember.  Seems Eddie wasn't always (ok, was never) the star pupil.

Re: Creme Fraiche Question

Birdymum - I make lactose free creme fraiche all the time - all you do is follow a regular recipe, but leave it to ferment away for a minimum of 36 hours (during which time all those lovely beneficial bacteria will eat all the lovely lactose in the mixture wink  ), and Bob's your uncle  big_smile

Re: Creme Fraiche Question

Mada, the advantage of creme fraiche is that it it won't break, or separate if you use it in a sauce that is cooked.  Sour cream and youghurt will.  Also, sometimes you want a creamier less astringent flavor in a sauce and creme fraiche is perfect for that.

Re: Creme Fraiche Question

there must be a trucco/tip not make yogurth separate, that is to stabilize it, I'll find it, and yes yogurth has a somewhat acid taste, the fact is that I do not like adding cream to my cooked dishes, I like it only in or on cakes wink
