If you have a mandolin slicer or processor, the better for this recipe. If you do not have to do with these pieces of kitchen equipment and a good sharp knife is the best choice. Make sure they are of uniform thickness for even cooking.

Rust 3 pounds potatoes, peeled, sliced 1/8-inch-thick
1 1 / 2 cups of cream, mixed with a * recipe below to make losing the cream fraiche. If you decide not to do at the supermarketshops are now on sale.
1 1 / 2 cups Gruyere cheese
2 tablespoons chopped fresh Italian parsley


Preheat oven to 400 degrees, plenty of butter in a 12×12-inch glass baking dish. You then add half the potato slices in bottom of prepared dish, overlapping is okay, and necessary. Sprinkle generously with salt and pepper and spread half the creme fraiche over the potatoes and add half the cheese. Top with remainingPotatoes, overlapping slightly, and then generously with salt and pepper. Spread with remaining cream fraiche and give the potatoes with the remaining cheese.

Bake gratin uncovered 30 minutes. Reduce the oven temperature to 350 degrees and continue to bake until gratin potatoes are tender and top is golden, about 45 minutes. They will also remove from the oven for 10 minutes. With parsley and serve.

How fresh cream:

In a medium saucepanwarm over low heat for 1 cup cream 110f degrees. She did not remove from the heat source and grown with agitation in 1 tablespoon of butter milk. Transfer the cream into a large bowl and let this mixture in a warm place, loosely covered with a firm plastic wrap, until thickened to the consistency, but still pay. Stir and taste every 6 to 8 hours. This process takes anywhere from 24 to 36 hours, depending on the temperature. The sour cream is ready when it is thick with a slight nutty flavorsour taste. Chill cream in the refrigerator for several hours before use. cream can be refrigerated for up to 10 days. I prefer instead of buying it, is a long process and I prefer to pick it up and use it the same day.
