Milk products, such as cream, yogurt, buttermilk, clotted cream, sour cream and creme fraiche, have a myriad of uses in sweet and savory dishes. Though commercially available, the latter three are easily made at home.

I’m going to tell you how to make creme fraiche easily at home. Creme fraiche is a partially soured, tangy cream which has the added bonus of not separating during cooking. Instead of adding double cream as I have in this recipe, you can also add sour cream or plain yogurt to make the creme fraiche tastier and creamier. You can use creme fraiche to add flavor to soups, sauces and savory dishes, it is also delicious as a topping for fruit and sweet dishes, such as this recipe for melon berry basket.
