“Homemade Sour Cream”

 

Making sour cream is high on the list of  simple but delicious cultured goat milk products.  Only two ingredients are require  and 24 hours later you will be enjoying delicious, homemade sour cream for your baked potato, soups and casseroles, or other dishes.

 

To make sour cream, you will need:

  • 1 Cup  goat milk cream
  • 1 Tablespoon cultured buttermilk

 

Directions:

Warm the cream to approximately 75° F. Add the buttermilk, and stir to mix thoroughly. Cover, and leave at room temperature for about 24 hours. Transfer to a storage container, refrigerate and serve. The sour cream will thicken as it cools.

If you’d like a heavier texture, you can use  a higher ratio of buttermilk to cream.

By using whole milk instead of cream, you can get the sour cream taste in a thinner version that is especially good for making cream-based soups.

Alternatively, you can also use a direct-set culture for making sour cream. This is a pre measured packet found at dairy supply companies that is mixed into the cream and left to culture. These generally produce a slightly tangier taste than using cultured buttermilk.
