“And her face always looked strained and worried, as if her shipload of sour cream had just sunk.”
—I. L. Peretz, “
In the Mail Coach”
And there are alternatives. You can substitute reduced-fat sour cream. But personally, I tend to stay away from most such products—either the taste itself is strange or the ingredients list contains too many weird, unwholesome additives. I’d rather eat the real stuff, just less frequently. And between times, I use the Sephardi counterpart made of drained yogurt, sometimes referred to as yogurt cheese, here called yogurt cream.
