Creme Fraiche

does anyone know where to buy this in Edmonton? i've tried (with no success) conventional supermarkets, the Italian Centre and KK Foodliner.

  1. I don't know where to get it... but I know how to make it... 4 cups heavy cream and 2 tablespoons butter milk... mix together then leave at room temp uncovered overnight to thicken. Stir the thickened creme fraiche, cover and refrigerate. Will store for 1 week.

      Will it work with pasturized cream? I thought you had to have raw cream to make it.

        Pastuerized cream works. I've done it with sour cream in place of the buttermilk.I'm betting the flavour is slightly different. Guess I need to do a taste test.

    2. I buy creme fraiche in Calgary from Community Natural foods - it's the Liberte brand & it's good enough - not as good as some of the product you can easily pick up in any UK supermarket.

      Maybe e-mail them & ask if they have any stockists in Edmonton
