Where I live it's impossible to find sour cream. There is a similar russian
product called Smetana with 30% fat. Anybody knows as whether this can be
used instead of sour cream in baking? How much fat does american sour cream
contain? Thnx



Re: Smetana used instead of sour cream
I think it is 14% for regular and 7% for lite sour creme.  wendy

Daisy is a popular brand in the US and has about 16% fat, by weight.   You

According to the website Recipe Goldmine,
http://www.recipegoldmine.com/kitchart/kitchart10.html , the following
substitutions could be made, when cooking, for an 8-ounce carton:

1 tablespoon lemon juice plus evaporated milk to equal 1 cup
3 tablespoons butter plus 7/8 cup sour milk
1 cup plain yogurt plus 3 tablespoons melted butter
1 cup plain yogurt plus 1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 cup cottage cheese plus 1/4 cup buttermilk plus 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
blended until smooth
