1. Combine all ingredients in an airtight mason jar with a lid.

2. Secure the lid and begin shaking the mason jar until the cream thickens (about 2 minutes).

3. Get a cheesecloth or kitchen paper and place it over the open mason jar.
4. Leave for 24 hours in a cool, dark place.

5. Remove the cheesecloth/kitchen paper and give the mixture a final stir. It will have thickened significantly to a sour cream texture.

6. Secure the lid back on and store it in the fridge for up to 1 week.
