So, what is smotana?

Smotana is a traditional dairy product from Eastern Europe, particularly popular in countries like Poland, Russia, and Ukraine. It is a type of sour cream that is made by fermenting heavy cream with lactic acid bacteria. Smotana has a tangy flavor, and its texture is thick and creamy, making it an excellent ingredient for various dishes such as soups, stews, and sauces. This versatile ingredient can also be used as a topping for baked potatoes or served alongside blinis and caviar. In addition to its culinary uses, smotana is believed to have numerous health benefits, including promoting digestion and boosting the immune system.
