Home brewed sour cream is one of the healthiest home brews you can eat because it carries a negative charge.

“Sour cream is a very healthy food because it has both the fat and the lactate. Lactate is very, very interesting fuel because it’s not sugar, and sugar has a lot of bad issues, and it carries a negative charge,” says Dr. Stephanie Seneff, the leading expert on sulfur and how it functions in the body, an electrical engineer, a computer science specialist who then converted into the biological sciences with a biology degree as well as food and nutrition specialty.

Dr. Seneff adds, “It’s very interesting that lactate carries the negative charge. Negative charge particles in the blood are very very important to the bloods colloidal stability. This is a crucial thing that is happening to people as they get older, they lose the colloidal stability in the blood and they start to get into blood clots and hemorrhages.”

IMAG2587The hardest thing about making your own sour cream is obtaining the raw cream. Organic cream from the store can be used but it’s not optimum.

Sour Cream

Take one quart raw cream, add 3 tablespoons of raw yogurt and stir to combine. Be sure to leave one inch headroom (space on top of the cream between the cream and the lid). Put the lid on top and leave it on the counter for 2-3 days shaking twice a day. After you put the jar in the refrigerator and it will get even thicker.
