flavored crème fraiche

Creme fraiche

During my little sojourn in Sweden a few years ago, I discovered flavored crème fraiche. Here in America, we usually just have plain creme fraiche but in the Swedish grocery stores I noticed sweet and savory flavors. I loved adding tomato creme fraiche to my sandwiches. So yummy! I asked Elizabeth to make a version. She's included instructions on how to make your own creme fraiche at home and also how to add flavor to purchased creme fraiche. Flavors include Lemon and Dill, Avocado, and Roasted Tomato and Basil. I hope you enjoy! Thank you as always to Lisa Warninger for the photos.

  1. This sounds so delicious! And what a great photo. I’ve become obsessed with Quark from Germany since I visited last year, and since the Creme Fraiche is right next to it at Whole Foods, I can’t wait to try something new with these recipes. Thanks for sharing!

  2. That sounds delicious. I can’t wait to try it.

    ps – I can’t believe it’s been a few YEARS since you were in sweden. time is moving way too quickly!

  3. Yum – looks delicious. Definitely want to try. (Also, keep looking at that little house in Sweden and figuring out if I should go.)

  4. Excited to try these recipes! I love creme fraiche. I make a flavored creme fraiche with grainy mustard, horseradish, and a little lemon juice. It’s my favorite spread for a sandwich (especially a steak sandwich.)

  5. is this at all similar to quark? that was one of my favorite types of yogurt when i lived in switzerland, and if i could find anything similar here, even to make at home, i’d be so happy!
    p.s. i’m so happy you’re doing these recipes again with your sister 🙂
