Q: If crème fraîche is not available, can you make your own or would sweetened sour cream be just as good?

Editor: Plain sour cream is a great substitute for crème fraîche, and the result will just be slightly more sour than if crème fraîche is used. If you’re feeling ambitious, make your own crème fraîche with just buttermilk and cream!

Readers, are there other substitutes for crème fraîche that you like?
