Creme Fraiche is a popular French version of sour cream. It has a tangy, almost nutty, flavour that is wonderfully smooth. We sell the heirloom version which means you can continue to produce Creme Fraiche time and time again by reculturing cream from the previous batch you made. Heirloom Creme Fraiche is quite hard to come by these days. It's a fantastic way to ferment and preserve cream. It also tastes great and has many uses in the kitchen.
Our Creme Fraiche starter is an active culture containing the following lactic bacteria: lactococcus lactis supsp. lactis, Lactococcus lactis subsp. cremoris, Lactococcus lactis subsp. diacetylactis, Leuconostoc mesenteroides subsp. cremoris
