This sour cream substitute is very easy to make and will get you out of any pickles. Sometimes you live in places where sour cream is not a staple — like Vanuatu — and you need some for recipes or as a topping for your favorite foods.
Well, here is the solution. This sour cream substitute looks like sour cream and tastes like sour cream. You will be very pleased at how well this works.
There are some important pointers for this. You must use a heavy whipping cream or it will not work. You will also find that Meyer lemons are not acid enough for this to work like it should. A very few people have expressed their frustration saying that they have whipped and whipped this and it did not thicken. As I say in the video, if it gets too thick you might have to add some more cream and if it is not thickening enough you might have to use a little more lemon.
If you can make this work, which I hope you can — I use it all the time over here — you will be absolutely pleased with this sour cream substitute.
Here is what you are going to need for this awesome and instant sour cream substitute:
1 cup of heavy or whipping cream
1 tsp. fresh lemon juice
1/4 tsp. salt or more to taste
Place the cream in a bowl. Add the lemon juice and whisk vigorously, until the cream is thickened. Mix in the salt and you are done! Use the sour cream immediately or store in the fridge, in a covered container, for up to two days.
If you want the sour cream to be thinner, add a little more cream. If you are having trouble getting it to thicken, add more lemon juice.
