Gorgeous Creme Fraiche, I love you, and I love the French for creating you! The French are a culture full of wonderful, lush indulgences – wine, cheese, butter, cream, meat, frites.  They aren’t overweight; they don’t diet. Out of the 196 countries in the world today, the French are often ranked in the top 10-15 healthiest cultures in the world. They enjoy natural, home cooked meals. They linger over their food – delight in each bite. They are getting it right. Homage.

Creme Fraiche literally means ‘fresh cream’. It’s created by a fermentation process, much like yogurt and sour cream; however, it taste very different. It’s denser, and it has a lovely, nutty tang to its flavor. It’s a wonderful addition to sweet and savory dishes like fruit, vegetable sauces and smoked salmon. The fermentation process promotes the growth of healthy bacteria, known as probiotics. Probiotics, in my opinion, are one of the keys to optimal health because they keep the gastrointestinal tract healthy. Typically, with a healthy GI tract, you will have an immune system primed and ready to go to battle for you. Creme Fraiche is just one of the many healthy probiotic foods we can include in our diet.

I will be posting a recipe for homemade Creme Fraiche soon, so watch this space. Until then, delight in this lovely, refreshing frozen treat!

Enjoy!
