Turned Out Great, Just Hope for an Heirloom Culture Next Time!

Great result when following the directions, but I hope for an heirloom culture next time to do batch after batch.

I’ll write when I make it. Just found out we can start to get raw milk soon here.

Nice starter w great flavor

We were not sure if we could keep this at the right temperature to fully firm up, but it thickened nicely. I have been eating it for a couple weeks and it is still tasty.

A thousand times better than making creme fraiche with buttermilk. I've bought several packs so we'll always have creme fraiche in the house!

Steven Baumrucker

Best creme fraiche I've ever made AND it doesn't waste a whole container of buttermilk just to get a couple of teaspoons ;-)
