Crème Fraiche Kitchen Tips:
- A room temperature of about 25C is ideal for bacterial cultures, so find a warm place in your house. The warmer it is, the faster the cream will thicken. If the temperature is cooler, expect it to take the full 24 hours.
- This recipe also works in the Instant Pot. Place ingredients in a jar, uncovered. Place on rack in Instant Pot insert and cook for 8 hours on the yogurt setting. The resulting homemade crème fraîche will be creamy, but less tangy.
