So, what is smântână?

Smântână is a traditional Romanian dairy product that originated from sour cream. It has a tangy, slightly sour taste with a creamy texture and a pale yellow color. Smântână is made by fermenting heavy cream with lactic acid bacteria, giving it a distinct flavor profile. It's commonly used in Romanian cuisine as a condiment for soups, stews, and sauces, but also in baked goods and desserts. With its unique taste and versatility, smântână adds depth and complexity to any dish it's used in and is a must-try ingredient for any food enthusiast looking to explore bold flavors.
