How to Make Creme Fraiche At Home

Okay. Creme fresh. Creme fresh is essentially sort of like the French version of sour cream. in my opinion, it’s a lot more delicious. It’s, it’s lightly fermented. It’s a lot richer.

After time at room temperature, pop the lid on and store this thing in the fridge. It should last for about six to eight weeks, something like that.
