What is Schmand?
Cream that has been soured with lactic acid bacteria. With a 20 to 28% fat content, it is higher in fat than German sour cream (saure Sahne) with only 10% fat and thus it is less prone to curdle when heated. Schmand has a thick consistency and is used for dips, sauces and baking, most notably in the so called Schmandkuchen. American sour cream is made the same way as Schmand and works well as a substitute. Or use half cream cheese and sour cream.

It would help if the ingredients were in cups and teaspoons etc. The product is delicious and took a little bit of research to get them mixed together correctly. My daughter in law is from Germany and loved this.
