Gingered Creme Fraiche

Condiments & Canning
This simple recipe is a sparkling alternative to whipped cream. I serve it with my Cupboard Harvest Pie. It goes well with rich fruit filled pies and hand pies, but could totally work with a sweet potato or squash pie.


  • 1 pint of creme fraiche
  • 2 oz of candied ginger, chopped fine


  1. Combine creme fraiche and ginger and stir. Allow to sit for 1/2 hour in the refrigerator so the sugar melts and the flavors meld.

Yield: 1 pint


You can use sugared candied ginger or candied ginger in liquid for this recipe.
