The best sour cream

I just got done making my first batch of sour cream, using the sour cream starter culture, and I was pleasantly surprised to find it was the freshest tasting sour cream. It will be hard eating store bought sour cream again.

Sour cream starter culture

My daughter got me hooked on making my own sour cream with just a small packet of starter. I have never liked sour cream but after making the homemade sour cream, I was hooked!! So easy to make!

Love this Sour Cream

Taste is great but I thought it was a little runny so I tried adding powdered milk. Next time I'll try using heavy cream instead of half and half.
