Pantry Staples: Making Sour Cream From Powder

Sour cream powder is a great ingredient to have on hand. It’s great added to recipes as a dry ingredient (instant mashed potatoes for example, it makes them creamy and tart), but making it into a fresh bowl of sour cream is just fun to do. It gives you an option if you realize you are out of fresh sour cream, or the power is out and you need some (burritos are a great power outage meal).

Sour Cream


To make:

Slowly add in 2 Tablespoons cold water, stirring in, till fully mixed. Seal and let sit. It will thicken after a few minutes, especially if put into the refrigerator (if power is on).

Amazon sells sour cream powder as well.
