Stir the buttermilk into the cream and heat to lukewarm- not over 85 degrees. Pour the mixture into a loosely covered jar and let it stand at a temperature of not over 85 degrees nor under 60 degrees until it has thickened. This will take 5 to 8 hours on a hot day, 24 to 36 hours at a low temperature. Stir, cover, and refrigerate.
This simple recipe can dress up the simplest fresh fruit and well as bringing a depth of flavor. Neat, easy, and frugal, simplicity as it’s best. How may uses will you find for it?
