Description

Add Creme Fraiche culture to light cream for a sweet and delicious cultured treat. There are many ways to enjoy Creme Fraiche including drizzling over fresh fruit or a warm bisque, added to a smoothy, used in cooking.

When drained slightly, it will become a thick and creamy Mascarpone. When draining it is fabulous on sweet bread or even stuffed into dates.

The products from NECM are so reliable, it increases your own confidence in trying different recipes as you have so much confidence in the products they supply. The crème fraiche, sour cream & mascarpone are no exception.

One of my favorites.

this starter is one of my all time favorites. It is so creamy and has great flavor. This one with goat milk is so good my friends are constantly asking me to make more.

As always...

Everything I purchase from NECMS gives spectacular results. Far better than anything we can buy in retail. The first time I tried the Buttermilk culture... I was instantly taken back 60 years, when I actually enjoyed buttermilk... Even crumbled cornbread in it, like the "old folks did".

Creme Fraiche

Love this stuff. I have added it to my rotation. I also like to think of all the little plastic tubs I don't have to use when I make this at home.
