What is Crème Fraiche and can I make or buy it here in the U.S.?
Crème Fraiche is a French form of fresh, heavy cream. You could make it by combining 1 teaspoon buttermilk or 2 teaspoons sour cream, and 1 cup heavy cream. It can be used in salads, breads, or desserts, or in making sauces for meat, fish, vegetables, or pasta.
