      I like to pan fry some meat or fish then remove it from the pan and add a couple of spoonfuls of creme fraiche to the juices left in the pan and heat it through to make a simple sauce

            I second it's sauce-making possibilities.
            Give me liberty. Exploration of other options will be vigorously discouraged.

              The bordelaise over a porterhouse is awesome. I'm going to try the stroganoff with zuke noodles.

                Creme fraiche is a miracle food. It not only serves as a delicious base for sauces and dressings, it is a fantastic topping all by itself, over both fruit desserts AND meat dishes. Take that, guacamole!
                If you are new to the PB - please ignore ALL of this stuff, until you've read the book, or at least http://www.marksdailyapple.com/primal-blueprint-101/ and this (personal fave): http://www.archevore.com/get-started/

                    MalPaz, I guess a lot of people are leery of culturing their own dairy, but I enjoy it. If you culture a pint of heavy cream with three or four tablespoons of cultured buttermilk, you have creme fraiche in about 12-15 hours. This not only gives it an outstanding texture, and extends the shelf life; but it also improves the taste and adds probiotics.
