Ranch Dressing

May 23, 2012 by

The creators of Ranch dressing are Gayle and Steve Henson from a dude ranch outside Santa Barbara, California. That name of that ranch was Hidden Valley Ranch. The Henson’s opened this ranch in 1954 and visitors came to enjoy horseback riding and taking in the scenery. However, the more memorable experience of these trips was generally the taste of the homemade salad dressing served at the ranch. On the menu at the dude ranch was a special salad dressing made up of buttermilk, mayonnaise and a dry mix of herbs and spices. This dressing became termed Ranch and soon was the only salad dressing served. Ranch dressing has been the nation’s best-selling salad topper since 1992.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup buttermilk
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper
  • 1/8 tsp dill weed
  • 1/2 tsp crushed garlic
  • 2 tbsp parsley
  • 2 tbsp chives
  • 1/2 tsp sugar

Instructions

  1. Put the mayo, sour cream and buttermilk in a bowl and mix well. Add the black pepper, garlic, and dill weed to the mix. Then add the chopped parsley and chives. You can put this in the blender to make it more smoother if you like.

Creme Fraiche

May 22, 2012 by

Creme fraiche (French for “fresh cream”) is a heavy cream slightly soured with bacterial culture, but not as sour or as thick as sour cream. Originally a French product, today it is available throughout Europe and the rest of the world. Can be made by adding a small amount of buttermilk or sour cream to normal heavy cream, and allowing to stand for several hours at room temperature until the bacterial cultures act on the cream.

Ingredients

2 cups of heavy cream
1 cup of buttermilk
2 tbsp. lemon juice

Instructions

Mix the ingredients together and cover let stand at room temp 24 hours, then refrigerate.
