Accidentally frozen Sour Cream....what can I do?

Our tub of sour cream got pushed back into the coldest corner of the fridge, and got frozen. The texture all weirded out, water and solid separating... it just don't look very appetizing, it looks like.. well, sort of...

I would hate to throw it away as I am sure it has not gone bad, is there any way to salvage it? To bring back the smooth texture, or into some recipe that would disguise this altered texture?
Any input will be appreciated!! TIA!!

I freeze sour cream all the time, just pop it in the processor or blender and reblend it. : )

OH!! Is it that easy? Great... I gotta try that. Thanks! Can it be heated after that? Not to cook for a long time but, like blending into warm sauce etc... will it hold its texture? Well if not I can always use it for salad etc, but it will be nice to know...

Sour cream is never quite the same after you thaw it , so you probably shouldn't do it on purpose (This explains why for you scientists) but you should be able to whisk it back together. The texture is off, so I wouldn't use it for a dip or a dressing, but it would be ok to cook with.

Thanks Jenny for the informative link... I will do some experiment today as once frozen and thawed probably better used up quickly...
thanks for the help!!

ewwwwwwwwwwwww Buckytom! My mom colored the salt green one time. It looked very strange on top of eggs, mashed potatoes, and baked potatoes with sour cream!

cool idea barbara. i will have to do that sometime. i've had colored sugars for rimming international coffees (green - irish coffee, red - polish coffee, blue and yellow - swedish coffee, green and red - mexican and italian coffee, etc.), but never colored salt.
