Make your own Sour Cream

       I love to make things from scratch, even as far as my condiments.  It brings my kids into the kitchen and allows us to spend time together making food that we all love.  Sour cream is no exception.  It is really easy to make and if you have the ingredients it is cheaper to make it yourself than buy it regularly at the store.


2 Cups Light Cream
2 Tbsp Buttermilk

      Combine cream with buttermilk in a canning jar that is hot and sterile.  Cover tightly with lid and shake gently to mix thoroughly.  Let stand in a warm place such as where you allow bread to rise for 24 - 48 hours and allow it to thicken.  Store your finished sour cream in the refrigerator and be sure to use it within 3 weeks time.  Recipe makes 2 cups.
