Sour Cream… home made quick fix recipe for when you need just a small quantity and need to use it immediately or if you can’t find store bought where you live or if the store bought version is marked “imported” and is way too expensive…Do note that the home made version is not as thick as the store bought version…using heavy/double cream will result in a thicker sour cream, so choose single or double cream based on the texture you are looking for.
- Table Cream/Single Cream/Half and Half OR Heavy Cream/Double Cream, chilled, 150 ml
- Lemon juice, 1 tsp
Pour the chilled cream into a bowl and whisk till the cream begins to thicken. ( a regular balloon or hand whisk would do, no need to pull out the big guns for this one)
Add in the lemon juice and whisk till the cream forms semi-stiff peaks.
Chill and use within a day
