Homemade Farm Fresh Sour Cream

mmm….who doesn’t love sour cream? 
Especially on baked potatoes, on top of enchiladas and burritos, and my favorite- on a big plate of cheesy nachos!  

You may not know that you can easily make your own sour cream at home!  And without any stabilizers or preservatives.  This recipe uses a Mesophilic Starter Culture (you can find it here) to make sure it properly thickens and sours. The culture comes in a small bag, and goes a long way.

This Farm Fresh Sour Cream is a little thinner, and may not last quite as long as what you buy in the store, but I think you will want to try it! Enjoy!

Homemade Farm Fresh Sour Cream 
from One Ash Farm Recipes

1 quart of fresh cream
1/8 tsp. Mesophilic Culture

Gently stir the culture into the cream.
Leave in a jar, lightly covered, on the counter for 12-24 hours.
Refrigerate and enjoy for up to a week.

Tips- I use a quart mason jar and cover it with a 
cute piece of fabric, held in place with a rubber band or piece of twine.
I think that makes it look so cute sitting out on the counter!
