I need 1/2 c. sour cream for a recipe and don't have any. I don't have any yogurt either. Is there some way to make sour cream? I know how to make buttermilk, but don't know if it's possible to make a substitution for sour cream.
Yes, there is. MANY years ago, I found this recipe in a newspaper, and have used it in place of sour cream in dips, toppings, and casseroles.
Here it is....
Cottage Cheese Sour Cream
2 tablespoons milk
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 cup cottage cheese
1/4 teaspoon salt
Blend all ingredients in blender or food processor until smooth.

Plain Greek Yogurt is even better and smoother than the one made with cottage cheese.
The measurements make 1 cup so half them for your recipe.
