    Wonderful Results

    I have made sour cream with this using both half & half and skimmed milk. The skimmed milk results were on par with store bought sour cream and probably was a bit better because it was fresher than store bought. The half & half sour cream was by far better than any store bought I've ever had. Even using half & half the cost is less than store bought.

    I highly recommend this product for anyone who likes sour cream and uses it on a regular basis.
