How To Dehydrate Sour Cream
Dehydrated sour cream acts as a zesty agent in many delicious baked recipes. However, many cooks find it difficult to dehydrate sour cream at home. Learning to do so will not only save you money and time but will also lend the perfect flavor to your recipes. Just follow these steps and get yourself a bowl full of dehydrated sour cream.
- Start by spreading out the sour cream on a clean baking sheet. Be careful to spread out the cream evenly, in a layer that is not thicker than ¼ inch.
- After spreading the sour cream on a baking sheet in a baking tray, place the tray in a dehydrator.
- Set the dehydrator at its lowest temperature setting, which should be not more than 140 degree Fahrenheit.
- Keep checking the sour cream from time to time or at least once every 20 minutes.
- An important step in this process is that the sour cream layer should be brittle. Once you find that the cream has become brittle, remove the tray from the dehydrator.
- Crumble the sour cream in a food processor or with your hands into a fine powder and store it in an air-tight jar.
- You can use this cream later for your baked recipes.
