Tips On Making Cashew Sour Cream
SOAK THE CASHEWS
Before blending the cashews you must soak them. I recommend soaking them for at least 15 minutes in boiling hot water. Overnight will also do, but isn’t necessary. The longer you soak the cashews the smoother your vegan sour cream will come out.
Make sure you store your cashew dressing in the refrigerator, not at room temperature. Cashew sour cream will last up to 7-10 days in the fridge.
ADD MAPLE SYRUP
Once I made this with a super ripe and sour lemon and found it too tangy. If this happens to you just add some pure maple syrup to help sweeten it up
