I use this interchangeably with cream cheese. I also used this for the 'Belper Knolle' garlic/pepper cheese bombs on the Recipe page. One gallon of milk really makes a lot!

Fabulous!

I use raw cream from our Jersey cow to make this ....it is easy AND very good. I like to whip some for spreading and then drain the rest using my Greek yogurt screen cup to make mascarpone.

So good

I didn't really appreciate creme fraiche before I started making it myself with this culture. I use gently pasteurized 1/2 and 1/2 and the result is indulgent. Love it with Johnny Cakes or pancakes.

This is the cheese that sold my wife on the idea that homemade cheese is awesome. Drained half for a marscapone(used on some mini bagels at a family gathering) and kept the other half as creme fraiche (with only almond extract added then poured over frozen berries!).

It makes for a good start into the field of cheesing and a good culture for achieving a delightful couple of cheeses.


Super easy and what a great taste!

I was careful to use pasteurized and not ultra-pasteurized milk/cream and the results were amazing. I'll be making more!
