You can buy crème fraîche at the supermarket, but it’s so easy to prepare at home. And, as with everything homemade, the from-scratch version tastes fresher and better, so maybe you’ll give it a try if you have the time. If not, just stir the lemon zest, lemon juice, and minced candied ginger into your store-bought crème fraîche for a delicious accompaniment to your latkes, fresh fruit, or angel food cake. Either way, it’s rich and decadent—but then again, it’s an indulgence, and I think there’s room for a little indulgence in a healthy diet.
