Did You Know-Sour Cream

When is the last time you looked at the bottom of the sour cream foil? I know I never did, however, yesterday I saw this when I opened mine. Did you know you were suppose to smooth out the top of the sour cream after using it to make it stay fresh longer?

UPDATE: After checking into this, I found the reason you smooth it is because it prevents the whey from separating.

  1. Interesting. I’ve quit using it and use my favorite yogurt instead, Nancy’s Organic whole milk probiotic plain yogurt. It’s perhaps pricier than sour cream but I love the consistency, thickness and high probiotic count.


  2. Is that for yoghurt too Diane? I buy the large cartons of Greek Yogurtt and the next day after I open up the that carton of yoghurt, there is about an inch of water on top of it. I always stir it but it looks strange.
