DIY Sour Cream
If you're in the mood for something sweet and sour, making a DIY sour cream is a great, tasty way to enjoy a simple yet delicious treat.
Servings: 1 cup
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 2 tablespoon lemon juice or any acidic ingredient of choice ( such as white wine vinegar or apple cider vinegar)
- ¼ teaspoon salt
To start off this easy process, mix the heavy cream with your chosen acidic ingredient until the mixture thickens slightly.
Then add the salt and stir again until it's fully combined.
After that, you can choose whether to enjoy your sour cream right away or let it sit overnight in the fridge to ferment and thicken - both options provide a great result!
With just a few ingredients and minimal effort, now you have an unforgettable sweet-tart treat for any occasion!
- The longer it sits, the more intense its tangy flavor becomes — giving your final dish that extra burst of flavor! Enjoy your homemade sour cream in tacos, salads, or any of your favorite recipes!
- Store the homemade sour cream in an airtight container.
- To make vegan sour cream, replace heavy cream with full-fat coconut milk or coconut cream, additionally, you can also try a combination of non-dairy milk either with melted vegan butter or a few tablespoons of cornstarch.
