creme fraiche help
so i was blessed with about 7 containers of vermont butter and cheese creme fraiche. it will go bad in about a month so i need to use it. this morning i whipped it up with brown sugar, minced apples, cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla then ate it with warmed flatbreads it was really good.
but my question what can i use this stuff for? please don't say "just add it to some soups". any thoughts? any recipes?
Here are some ideas I found:
It''s always great as a sauce for pasta, mixed in with vegetables in a pie or fritatta or as a topping for desserts.
My first suggestion would be to drive over to my house and share the wealth...
I second Paula's idea of using it in pasta sauce.
Mushrooms and pasta:
I also like the looks of this recipe, a peach pie with creme fraiche:
My mom used to make a dessert where she layered the creme fraiche with crumbled shortbread cookies, and sliced up strawberries/raspberries...yum!
I'd also try making a creme fraiche ice cream.
I am completely OBSESSED with creme fraiche (it's gotten to be kind of a problem), and this is the recipe that started the obsession -
It's really easy and has very few ingredients, but is amazingly delicious in its simplicity. I hope you enjoy!
