Good morning mylot community! I am wondering today all about creme fraiche. I have never tried it before, and wonder if it is like mymother's La Crema that she likes to buy and dip her tortilla chips in. It sounds good, and am wondering about any recipes for creme fraiche. Just the word "fraiche" sounds liek "fresh" to me. Is it good for recipes calling for sour cream? I am a little inexperienced in the kitchen I admit, and would like to leanr how to incorporate some creme fraiche into my meals.
