Crème Fraîche and Grapes – So Velvety and Simple!

Although it takes some time to make the homemade Crème Fraîche, it’s super easy. You can always buy it instead, but it tastes so much better to me fresh and without the preservatives. Once it’s made, this dessert goes together in under five minutes. Since it’s so fresh, velvety and luxurious, you’ll be making it again and again!
