Making this sour cream homemade recipe is both easy and rewarding. It contains no additives, no fillers or thickeners, and there is no plastic tub to discard. But the best reward: your homemade sour cream contains probiotics and it tastes absolutely delicious!
Plan ahead to give the sour cream 24 hours to thicken up, develop that tart flavor, and chill.
Sour Cream Homemade Recipe
1 cup heavy cream (raw works best)
1/4 cup white vinegar
In a screw-top jar or mason jar with lid, combine the heavy cream and vinegar. Shake the ingredients up a bit to thoroughly mix and let stand, covered, at room temperature for about 24 hours or until it becomes very thick. You can store your sour cream in the refrigerator in the original jar you mixed it in for up to one week.
Signs to look for that it should be discarded are a moldy or foul smell, mold growing on the surface, and turning yellow or other colors.
These problems occur when mold and bacteria are introduced to the sour cream other than the desired probiotic bacteria. These can come from your fingers, used spoons, or simply waft in from the air when it is uncovered.
It’s really that easy!
