Very good recipe, I didn't feel comfortable leaving a jar of cream and milk out even though the vinegar was probably enough to kill bacteria, I cheated I mixed it up with my kitchen aid until it looked like sour cream, and turned out tasting great plus I added a pinch of salt. Thank you for the recipe. 5 stars all the way!

Worked great! I was a little worried about leaving the ingredients unrefrigerated but it all worked out fine! This is a little runny compared to store bought, but you at least know what is being used to make it! Great for baked potatoes!
