Servings: 4 people
Ingredients
  • For the Creme Fraiche
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • For the Toast
  • 4 slices Hawaiian bread
  • 1 pint fresh strawberries
  • 4 tsp raw or brown sugar
  • 8 tsp sliced almonds
Instructions
  1. Combine the heavy whipping cream and lemon juice in a glass, ceramic, or plastic container.  Give it a good stir to make sure that the lemon juice is evenly dispersed.  Cover the container and leave on the counter overnight.  Don't worry!  This isn't sketchy...it's a simple way to culture the milk fats.

  2. Next day, check the creme fraiche to make sure that it has thickened to your liking (16-24 hours should do it).  Once the creme fraiche is ready, give it a stir and store it in the fridge for up to one week.

  3. To make the toast, slice the strawberries.  Then, pile the toast with a layer of strawberries, a dollop of creme fraiche, a sprinkle of raw or brown sugar and a scattering of sliced almonds.  Bon appetit!
