    It had such promise! But mine was (a) brown and (b) tasted almost nothing like sour cream. The kids rejected it. Wife rejected it.

    I used shelled raw hemp seeds, a very difficult-to-open coconut (bent my best knife, wah! Should have used the awl in the first place), all other ingredients except the miso, which is made of soy (an allergy in our house, and the reason we can’t just use the tofutti brand fake cream cheese). That shouldn’t have added sourness or made it whiter so I can’t imagine it would have helped much.

    I honestly don’t know what I did wrong!

    I’ll have to keep looking for a sour cream substitute…
