Homemade sour cream

Yesterday I said you could make homemade sour cream from homemade (or plain, or Greek) yogurt.

But you can make it another way, without yogurt!

1 cup cream
1/4 cup buttermilk

Mix, let sit overnight at room temperature. Then move to the refrigerator.

That's it!

Of course, if you have yogurt, you can make it this way, by draining off the liquid in the yogurt overnight and adding a bit of lemon.

You should know that plain yogurt can usually be used as a stand-in for sour cream in dips and recipes; so unless you want actual sour cream to put on a taco or baked potato or something, you can get away with just having yogurt in the fridge.
