The Basics: Sour Cream


Cooking Essentials

The Technique

Sour Cream

Sour cream may be used for a variety of cooking & baking applications. For savory items, dollop over entrees, side dishes, soups or appetizers ranging from simple baked potatoes to tostadas, nachos & your favorite chili. When sweets beckon, nothing quite beats the taste & texture sour cream provides in cookies, cupcakes, bars & frostings as the distinctive twang adds instant interest. Sour cream is made most generally from a combination of both cream & milk. Lactic acid & bacteria are then added which in turn ferments or sours the mixture & thicken it, too. A few tablespoons of sour cream has approximately 60 calories & close to 6 grams of fat per serving. When used in larger amounts such as in baked good applications, sour cream can be relied on in providing a sound source of calcium & vitamin A which aides in strong bone health & the immune system.

Sour cream can serve as the crowning jewel to many recipes. Although it’s simple to just stir well & top over your favorite recipes, place a bit in a zip-top freezer bag or disposable piping bag, snip the corner or end, then drizzle a design over nachos or many of your other favorite foods.
