    My favourite thing to do with crème frâiche at the moment is to mix it
    with some golden caster sugar (plain white will do if you don't have the
    golden) and some good vanilla extract and serve it with grilled
    pineapple, mango and peaches. I've also added melted plain chocolate to
    it and served it with fresh strawberries and cherries.

    Hmm... what else... It's lovely on plain chocolate cake (i.e. with no
    icing) and it's also good with cut up fruit in it as breakfast. I use
    it as a soured cream substitute in a lot of recipes, too (soured cream
    is still hard to find here and I like it with Tex-Mex and Indian food;
    it's good with hot chili!).

    Hope that gives you a couple of ideas, anyway.

    Thanks, Bonky... I was about to come back and look up Google, when I saw
    Jill's post...I liked both recipes..One uses Crème Fraiche and the other
    just Broccoli... I am going to check both out...

    I must say though..It is the first time I have seen him cooking 'Without'
    the Vile language all through... There has been a big 'Scream' by many about
    his programme that shows on one of our 'commercial' channels...With his well
    repeated F... word..and also being shown at 8 30 PM when lots of kids view
    it..They want it (if at all shown) at 9 30PM or later..

    Thanks Jen... The only thing is I am not fond of sweet things...Opposed to
    when I was younger, when I loved the sweets... My late wife always cooked a
    desert every night... But she has been gone now for 20 years, I usually
    don't eat deserts or have any sweet drinks....

    All that F-word thing is for show (why, I don't know), Barry. If you've
    ever seen him doing interviews he's actually quite a nice fellow. A family
    man, although he and his wife have separate kitchens. Harks back to Cathy's
    survey - his wife is a messy cook and he's not!

    Silver Palate has a terrific recipe for a pureed carrot and sweet
    potato vegetable side dish that calls for creme fraiche - I always
    make my own CF, though....

    Sweet Potato and Carrot Puree Silver Palate Cookbook

    4 large sweet potatoes (about 2 lbs.)
    1 lb. carrots
    2 1/2 C. water
    1 T. sugar
    12 T. sweet butter, soft
    Salt and black pepper, to taste
    1/2 C. creme fraiche
    1/2 tsp. nutmeg
    Dash of cayenne pepper (optional)

    Scrub potatoes and cut a small, deep slit in the top of each. Set on
    the center rack of a 375 deg. F. oven and bake for about 1 hour or
    until potatoes are tender when pierced with a fork. Meanwhile, peel
    and trim the carrots and cut them into 1 inch lengths. Put in
    saucepan and add water, sugar, 2 T. butter, and salt and pepper to
    taste. Set over medium heat, bring to a boil, and cook uncovered
    until water has evaporated and carrots begin to sizzle in the butter,
    about 30 minutes. The carrots should be tender. If not, add a little
    additional water and cook until carrots are done and all liquid has
    evaporated.

    Scrape out the flesh of sweet potatoes and combine with carrots in a
    food processor fitted with a steel blade. Add remaining butter and
    creme fraiche and process until very smooth. Add nutmeg and season to
    taste with salt and pepper. Add cayenne if desired and process
    briefly to blend.

    To reheat, transfer to an ovenproof serving dish and cover with foil.
    Heat at 350 deg. F. for about 25 minutes, or until steaming hot.
    Serves 6.

    For what it's worth, I don't add much sugar. I'm not fond of sickly
    sweet things myself!

    I was just thinking, I also use it in my lasagne as a base for my white
    sauce. 'course, I did nick that idea from Jamie Oliver... heh
    Here's my version:

    White sauce:
    500ml crème fraîche
    250g ricotta
    1 oz/25g parmesan
    1 1/2 tsp fresh basil, crushed and chopped
    a few scrapes of nutmeg
    a glug or so of milk, to loosen the mixture a bit

    It's not that I can't make béchamel, I just have a mild wheat
    intolerance and this is a tasty alternative.
