Except when I'm gonna cook w/it, then it's yogurt or kefir. CHicken Balti anyone?
What is it with organic sour cream? - Page 2
This is disappointing. I've been getting Organic Valley and didn't read the label . Don't quote me, but in one of my tf books I think when there is 'nonfat milk' listed it is DRIED nonfat milk . One of the biggest no-no's in my book. You can't screw up milk much more than nonfat dried milk. It is cheaper to thicken skim milk with dried milk than to use real cream. Sooo disappointing.
Guess I'm off to look for another brand......
It's what is in so many commercial yogurts for thickening too (soo many of the Greek style yogurts on the shelves now have the skim milk powder added)
I just wanted to mention for the Daisy users, I saw a huge 3 lb. tub of Daisy sour cream at Costco for only $3.49 earlier this week! I just wish they guaranteed no BGH like they do for Chipotle when they supply them. Hopefully it's just a matter of time...
This is where I buy it! I'm rarely brand loyal, but Daisy is the only sour cream we use.
I got curious so I goggled the Daisy website. According to their website, Daisy sour cream is free of additives, preservatives, and growth hormones. Which is good to know as I love Daisy sour cream and cottage cheese.
I buy Daisy for that very reason. I would prefer to get local, organic, hormone free sour cream, but it's not available (unless I make it myself). Daisy is tasty, cheap, and has two ingredients.
Cristeen, I might try making creme fraiche this week with my cream. I didn't realize it was that easy.
I buy Wallaby Organic Sour Cream (it says "european style" on the package) and it only as on ingredient: cultured oganic cream. It' delicious and less expensive than Organic Valley. I think Organic Valley's products pretty much suck all around. Their milk is all ultra pasturized. I don't know if Wallaby is sold everywhere, but this is at Whole Foods in Los Angeles. There is also a brand Clover Organic that I've seen but I haven't checked the ingredient list.
But I would go non-organic over organic if it were a choice between one made of cream and one made of nonfat dried milk (which is what I think the 3rd ingredient is that you listed)
