Crema

Crema

In Latin cooking, there are a few flavors as revered as fresh, authentic cream. In Mexico, farm fresh authentic crema is a prized ingredient that has become increasingly hard to find. Served over enchiladas, tacos, or simply fresh fruit, fresh crema (known in French cooking as crème fraiche) is a quick yet sensual trip to heaven. If you have a couple of minutes to spare, you should try making cultured, naturally thick crema at home.
