Default can sour cream be a substitute for cream fraiche?

can sour cream be a substitute for cream fraiche? If so, is low fat sour
cream ok? or can I mix it with some 35% cream?

Thanks,

It depends what you're using it for.

Um, what are you using it for?

from the web http://www.ochef.com/206.htm

"Most people make a facsimile of crème fraîche by adding a tablespoon of
buttermilk to a cup of whipping cream, heating it gently to 110°F (45°C),
then putting it in a loosely covered bottle in a warm place and letting it
sit for anywhere from 8 hours to a couple of days, until thick. Store it in
the refrigerator, where it will thicken further, and keep for about three
weeks. You can also whip it like whipping cream."

Remember, "facsimile"

I think that is a decision only you can make. It is not the same at
all, but it may be all right, depending on what you will use it for.

I would more likely substitute a really good yogurt if I had to, but
that wouldn't be the same either.

For that matter everybody's creme fraiche is different, too.

You can use virtually any cultured or soured milk product for that.
Yogurt, sour cream, mascarpone cheese, ricotta (either sieved or
processed), drained kefir or creme fraiche.

The different amounts of fat in each will give slightly different
finished results. The more fat, the more moist the bread.
