15 Recipes to Use Up a Tub of Crème Fraîche
Richer than sour cream but with a similarly tangy profile, crème fraîche is one of those ingredients you buy for a single recipe, then can't figure out how to use up. But it's not as hard to incorporate into your meals as you may think. Add a dollop on top of your fruit crisps, swirl it into spicy soups, or include in your favorite ice cream recipe to bring a new complexity to the flavors there. You can also just substitute it where you would normally use sour cream. These 15 recipes will ensure that you never let that tub of crème fraîche go to waste again.

Fruit Salad with Thai Herbs
We're ramping up to peak summer fruit season, aka fruit salad season, here in San Francisco. I stocked up at the weekend market, and had a bonus windfall thanks to this thoughtful lady. It is fruit madness in the refrigerator. I'm looking at tiny black raspberries, the sweetest blueberries, cherries, peaches, nectarines, strawberries, and pluots. No complaints.
Those of you who have been reading for a while know I love a quick fruit salad, particularly if it has a little wink, or twist, or surprise. One of my past favorites is this version made with plump strawberries, sweet cherries, lemon zest, and coriander brown sugar. Today I decided to throw together a new version using lemongrass, lemon and lime juices, and plenty of mint. Toasted walnuts added a bit of crunch. Give it a try, the honey-lemongrass dressing with mint works not only in this summer version, but with other fruit combinations as well.
If you live in a more tropical environment, I imagine a pineapple and mango version would be incredible. Enjoy! -h

What are the different types of salad?
There are multiple types of salads - the include green salads, fruit salads, rice and pasta salads, dinner salads, dessert salads, and bound salads (mayonnaise or other sauce-based salads).
How can I make a healthy salad?
You can make a healthy green salad, a fruit salad, or a vegetable salad. Salads that are healthy, usually showcase fresh, seasonal ingredients and minimize use of canned or jarred salad dressings (they often have hidden sugars). Make your own vinaigrette or toppings for your salad so you know what's in it.
What's an easy salad dressing?
The easiest salad dressing is a quick vinaigrette. You can make a vinaigrette with almost any type of oil and acid, but the ratio should be 3 parts oil to 1 part vinegar or acid. This might look like 3 tablespoons olive oil to 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar, mix in a pinch of salt and pepper and you've got a great salad dressing!.
Here are several types of oils you can use in dressings - olive oil, safflower oil, canola oil, avocado oil, or walnut oil.
For the vinegars you can use balsamic vinegar, red wine vinegar, sherry vinegar, or rice wine vinegar.
You can also mix in lemon, lime, or orange juice. A tablespoon of mustard makes a dressing really pop too! And don't forget to mix in some salt and pepper.
1. Sift the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt into a large bowl. Add the lime zest and butter, then rub together to flatten the pieces of butter so they form small flakes. (You could also do this in a food processor.)
2. Lightly whisk the egg and creme fraiche together in a bowl, then pour into the flour mix. Use a rubber spatula to fold together until the mixture forms a shaggy mass, then turn it out onto a floured workbench and roll the dough into a (roughly) 30cm square. Using a pastry scraper to help you, fold it into thirds. You now have a long rectangle about 10cm x 30cm. Lift the short ends of the dough and fold into thirds again, forming a small square. Dust with flour, transfer to a plate and refrigerate for 10 minutes.
3. In the meantime, hull the strawberries, cut into pieces about 1cm in size and set aside.
4. Preheat the oven to 210C (190C fan-forced).
5. Roll out dough onto a floured workbench (it will be very soft, so roll gently) into a 30cm square. Scatter the strawberries evenly over the square, then, using the pastry scraper to help you, roll it up, Swiss-roll style, so it forms a log. Lay seam-side down and gently squeeze or pat the log to make it an even thickness. Using a sharp, floured knife, cut into it 3 to 4-centimetre rounds. Place flat on a baking tray lined with baking paper.
6. For the topping, combine the sugar and lime zest in a small bowl and rub together to release the citrus oils into the sugar. Brush the top of each slice with milk or creme fraiche and sprinkle liberally with the lime sugar.
7. Bake until the tops and bottoms are golden brown, about 25 to 30 minutes.
8. Transfer to a cake rack to cool for 10 minutes before serving.
Tip: Leftover scones may be reheated in a warm oven for 5 minutes.
Creme Fraiche Lemon Pie
This pie is so good. I love the way it turned out. If you’ve never used or tasted creme fraiche in a recipe, watch out. You’ll be running to the store or whipping up a batch of homemade.
- FOR THE PIE:
- 1 cup Sugar
- 3 Tablespoons Cornstarch
- 1 cup Milk
- ½ cups Butter
- 1 whole Lemon, Zested
- ⅓ cups Lemon Juice
- 3 whole Egg Yolks
- ½ teaspoons Cinnamon
- 1 whole Pre-baked Pie Crust
- 1-¼ cup Crème Fraîche
- 1 teaspoon Almond Extract
- FOR THE TOPPING:
- 1 cup Heavy Whipping Cream
- 1 Tablespoon Sugar
- ¼ cups Crème Fraîche
Combine sugar and cornstarch in a heavy pot. Whisk to fully incorporate the cornstarch with the sugar.
Add to the pot the milk, butter, lemon zest, lemon juice, egg yolks and cinnamon. Mix with the whisk. Turn the fire on under the pot to a low medium until the butter melts. Once the butter melts, turn the fire up to medium and whisk constantly until the filling is thick and smooth. Note: it will never be completely smooth because you have the lemon zest in there.
Pour filling into a bowl and allow it to cool on the counter. Once the filling is almost completely cool, cover the bowl and put it in the refrigerator to chill.
Prepare your pie crust while the filling is cooling. If baking a pie crust, you will have to allow it to cool before filling.
When you’re ready to fill your crust, remove the filling from the refrigerator and fold the crème fraiche and almond extract into the lemon pie filling. Gently fold until the crème fraiche is completely mixed into the filling. Pour the filling into the pie crust and chill for about 2 hours.
For the whipped cream topping, add the heavy whipping cream and sugar to a large bowl. Beat with a mixer until very thick. Gently fold the crème fraiche into the whipped cream.

Refreshing summer appetizer!
This is both easy to make and AMAZING to eat! Fabulous recipe. I omitted the black pepper because it is not my thing, but I added a dab of vanilla extract and 1/8 tsp salt to the sauce. . I juiced two small limes and used all the juice. Absolutely fabulous.
This was absolutely delicious! All of our guests enjoyed this. There were two camps: those who left all of the torn basil and those who ate all of it with the peaches it seemed it was a love/hate thing. The real surprise was that our picky six year old who tasted mine asked if I could make a serving for him next time: SHOCKED!
This was great. Sounds odd, but wonderful. I had some creme fraiche (aka) mexican sour cream. Added a dollop with the cooked peaches.
Oh, my. This was amazing, and you can adapt the sugar/basil/lime syrup and make it into a dressing for a fabulous kale salad. Add some shallot, a little extra lemon/lime juice, red pepper flakes, salt, and olive oil to the syrup you made for this recipe. it was a riff on this recipe http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/views/kale-salad-with-dates-parmesan-and-almonds-51137020 I used just the toasted almonds and left out the parmesan and figs tonight. So the grilled peaches with this dressing, kale salad with the modified dressing from this recipe, and a salt/pepper grilled steak was an incredible meal bursting with summer flavors. Can't wait to make it again.
oh my, this was fabulous. Used the extra syrup for a fresh kale salad. a riff on this recipe http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/views/kale-salad-with-dates-parmesan-and-almonds-51137020 you can use the basil lime syrup found in this peach recipe on shredded kale with just the almonds. Don't need the figs or parmesan cheese. add a little extra lemon and the red pepper flakes to the syrup, olive oil, and toss the salad with this. Grill a steak and voila, you have a dinner bursting with summer flavors.
I cut the peaches into quarters so grilled two of the three sides. Then put a dollop of creme fraiche beside the peach and the entire dinner party was raving and taking the recipe home. The pepper looked nice on the plate in addition to the taste. I am going out to buy more peaches tomorrow to use some of the leftover sauce. This is a real stunner.
This was excellent. I made a half-batch of the sauce and it was more than enough. I seem to have forgotten to add the pepper. It was great even without it.
