Works like a charm

Directions were very easy to follow, and the resulting product was amazing. The culture is designed for pasteurized cream, so tweaking may be necessary if using raw cream. Will definitely buy again.

Best sour cream I’ve had

I bought this culture just to try once, when ordering the buttermilk culture. Made it the first time to have on tacos and to make a Jalapeño Avocado Crema sauce. Both were amazing. We haven’t bought store bought sour cream since. Just stocked up on some more culture packets to have on hand. EASY to make too. Heat the half&half add the culture and leave on the counter. Our kitchen hold pretty steady at 68-78 degrees depending on the time of year. When about 72 it took about 18 hours in a mason jar.
