Clotted Cream

Post by yogi » 23 Jul 2018, 19:34

Tell me about clotted cream. What do you do with it once you have a jar of it? I hear it's used on scones, but it must be useful in some other ways too.

When our milk goes bad, we throw it away.
Although I realize some people purposely buy curdled milk and actually eat it, sometimes on lettuce.
Have no idea what clotted cream is, but it doesn't sound to appetizing, hi hi.

I'd agree wholeheartedly with that observation, Gary. However, they sell this stuff in some stores. My wife even bought a jar, but I have nary an idea what to do with it.

My mom would deliberately curdle milk when making some kind of cakes. I'm thinking it's a substitute for buttermilk. But, clotted cream is something else.

The only way I like Cream is Whipped and piled high on desserts.
Or the canned whipped cream, just to eat directly out of the can.

I don't believe that stuff in a can is actually whipped cream. LOL The real thing (40% butterfat) is to die for when put on top of a cup of coffee. I do that when I need comfort food. Also, the Cheesecake Factory Restaurant serves whipped cream with their desserts. It's better than anything I can get elsewhere (except in my own kitchen).

Perhaps that is what my grandmother was making when she put cream in a double-boiler on the stove.

Only buy REAL Whipped Cream, don't like those that are not, or made from something else.

I'll put a spoonful of cream, or milk, into my scrambled eggs along with a shot of Worcestershire sauce. My wife wont eat it, but I have it on good authority that the cream addition makes the eggs cook better. Julia Childs wouldn't lie to me, would she?

I put milk in the mix when I make scrambled eggs. Keeps them light and fluffy!
Sometimes I add other things too, like grated cheese, etc.
