How to Make Sour Cream with our Pure Organic Sour Cream Starter Culture 








  1. Prepare the Starter Culture:

    • Open one sachet of Pure Organic Sour Cream Starter Culture.

  2. Combine Ingredients:

    • Pour the cream into the glass jar.

    • Sprinkle the contents of the starter culture sachet over the cream.

  3. Mix Well:

    • Stir the mixture thoroughly with a spoon until the starter culture is evenly distributed throughout the cream.

  4. Ferment:

    • Cover the jar with a lid but do not seal it tightly. The mixture needs to breathe.

    • Leave the jar at room temperature (about 21°C) for 24 to 48 hours* The exact time will depend on the room temperature; warmer environments will ferment faster.

    • Alternatively, you can ferment in a yoghurt maker for 10 to 15 hours at 30°C.

  5. Check Consistency and flavour:

    • After 24 hours, check the sour cream. It should have thickened to a creamy consistency and develop a sour flavour. If it hasn’t thickened or soured enough, let it sit for another 12 to 24 hours.

  6. Refrigerate:

    • Once the sour cream has thickened and soured, stir it well, then seal the jar with the lid and place it in the refrigerator.

    • Chill for at least 4 hours before using. This will allow the flavours to develop further.


  • Store your homemade sour cream in the refrigerator. It should keep for about 1 to 2 weeks.


Keep aside 4 tablespoons of sour cream to reuse as a starter for the next batch. You can repeat this process until the previous batch loses viability by failing to thicken and sour the cream.
