1 ⅔ cups 35 percent fat sour cream (Recipe for homemade sour cream in Step 1)
1 ¼ Cups flour
5 Cups full fat milk
¾ Tsp salt
Sour cream porridge with dried meats was festive food in the olden days and is still considered that today. Sour cream porridge must be made from high fat (35%) natural sour cream, with no stabilizers or gelatin added. For the best results, use homemade sour cream. Heat 1 cup whipping cream to 95 F, almost body temperature, then whisk in 2 Tbsp. buttermilk. Let stand at room temperature at least 8 hours, until thickened.
Simmer sour cream, covered, about 15 minutes.
Sift over ⅓ of the flour. Simmer until the butterfat begins to leach out. Skim off the fat.
Sift over the remaining flour and bring to a boil. Bring the milk to a boil and thin the porridge to desired consistency. Whisk until smooth. Simmer about 10 minutes, and season with salt. Serve with the fat, sugar and cinnamon.
