great organic creme fraiche
I like this, use it often, it being organic is good, no antibiotics in it and the cows looked after better. I use it on desserts in place of cream, in prawn cocktail sauce, stirred into pasta just before serving..
Strange texture, terrible taste
I've bought it a few times. It's very sour and when cooked, it becomes little white bits instead of creating a smooth cream effect like creme fraiche usually does. I've had to chuck my meal because of the taste of it. I recommend the Tesco one instead, it's pretty good.
I used this crème fraîche in a pasta sauce to my garlic mushroom pasta. It is really nice and creamy, good quality and not runny. I recommend.
I use this creme fraiche in lots of low-fat recipe
I use this creme fraiche in lots of low-fat recipes. One of the quick and easy ones is salmon & mushroom pasta. Cook pasta for 10 minutes in a saucepan of boiling water. While it's cooking, stir fry mushrooms with a small red onion adding previously prepared cubes/slices of fresh salmon after a few minutes. To make the sauce, you just mix half cup of vegetable stock with tomato puree, pour it over, cook for a few more minutes before taking off heat to add creme fraiche. Then add pasta and stir. Sprinkle some parmesan over the top and serve with a green salad.
