creme fraiche

no story
no fancy words
just a simple plea

make.your.own.

and 

use.it.liberally.
creme fraiche

3 cups heavy cream--room temperature
6 Tbs plain greek yogurt--room temperature
stir the yogurt into the heavy cream.  put into a glass jar and cover with a bit of cheesecloth (to keep out bugs and dust, but allow for airflow)
let sit draft free at room temperature for at least 12 hours and up to 36 hours
-the longer you leave it out, the more tangy it will become-
give it a good stir, it will thicken right before your eyes
tightly cover and pop in the fridge

enjoy where you would otherwise enjoy cream or sour cream

mix with a bit of brown sugar and pour over berries
stir into warm soup
create a calvados cream sauce for roast pork
pour over warm peas, carrots
or 
cold beets
just for starters....
