I’m going to bake a banana cake soon which requires creme fraiche in the recipe. Well, we can replace it with sour cream but we can make creme fraiche just by adding 1 cup of heavy cream and 1 tablespoon of buttermilk and leave it at room temperature over 24 hours until it thickens.

I had berries – blackberries, blueberries and raspberries – left from previous baking. In the fridge, there are also mint leaves and after scrapping the seeds off from the vanilla bean pod today, I thought of making a drink from all these good stuff. Just add some sugar to water, boil it and infuse the pod and mint leaves in it. Thereafter, pour the mixture into a bottle with all the other fruits in it and a few drops of freshly- squeezed lemon juice and leave it in the fridge for at least 2 hours.

And hey, you have a refreshing and wholesome drink!

It’s not something new but I thought I should just place it here so that I can refer to it. ;P
