Shelf Reliance Featured Product: Sour Cream Powder

I remember growing up, I hated sour cream.  You couldn’t pay me to eat something made with it and no way was I going to ruin a baked potato with a dollop.  Luckily as the years went by I ventured out of my safe picky zone and gave it a try.  Man, I can’t believe that I went without it for so long.

These days sour cream is much more than a potato topping for me.  I love adding it to casseroles, cakes and dips.  It just seems to make everything a little tastier.  When I first started using THRIVE products I couldn’t wait to try out our Sour Cream Powder.  I was always running out of fresh sour cream at the worst time, like when guest were coming for dinner in an hour and I just realized I was out!  Since we live about 20 minutes from the nearest grocery store I had to quickly rethink my dinner menu.

So I am sure you are wondering what I though about it?  Well I love it!       The texture is a little different from the sour cream you would pick up at the store.  You can play around with the amount of water that you add to get your desired consistency. When using powdered sour cream in a recipe I cant tell a difference. When using it as a topping for tacos or potatoes there is a slightly different taste than what you would expect from fresh, its not as tart.  If I am using it for a topping I will let it chill in the fridge for about an hour so it can firm up get nice and cold.
