  • Ideas for cream?

    So I gave into an impulse and bought a pint of grass-fed cream today. Any ideas what to do with it? Pretty much the only things I know how to make with cream are ice cream and whipped cream. I was hoping for something that wasn't a desert.

    Thanks,

      I was going to say a form of yogurt too! I prefer mine with half and half for straight yogurt but the cream will be like a rich creamy cheese that tastes kind of like butter. YUM.

        Broccoli soup! And many other kinds of soup. It's incredible.

          This is divine: Tomato Basil Chicken Soup

          4 boneless, chicken thighs (or 3 chicken breasts) precooked and diced
          4 cups canned crushed tomatoes (diced works as well since you'll be pureeing it)
          12 fresh basil leaves
          1 cup heavy cream
          1 stick (1/4 lb) of sweet unsalted butter
          Salt to taste
          ľ teaspoon cracked black pepper
          Approx. 1 cup chopped fresh spinach

          Simmer tomatoes in saucepan for 20-30 minutes. Puree, with the basil leaves, in small batches, in blender or food processor (or with immersion blender). Return to saucepan and add cream, butter, salt and pepper while stirring over low heat. Add diced chicken and chopped spinach.
          You don't have to be sick to get better.

            Thanks everyone for the suggestions. I am especially intrigued by the idea of making a high fat yogurt. Anyone have much luck with starting yogurt from probiotics? I have a specific probiotic that I was prescribed by my Dr. I'd love to make a yogurt from it. I've managed getting it started successfully once, but the last time I tried it I had no luck.

              maybe if you did the probiotic and a little greek yogurt when creating the base? I've added probiotic prescribed by my doc to my base, but haven't made it strictly using it

                It's very nice in scrambled eggs.
                Creamed spinach
                Poured over blueberries
                Whipped, folded into melted chocolate and butter (dessert- sorry)
                Coffee
                Cream makes everything amazing.

                    Hmm... isn't heavy cream too low in lactose to make yogurt?

                      Make a super duper 'breve' (I know breves are made with half and half and I don't know what you call one with heavy cream) but holy crap. Cream + espresso is always a good decision, or, make some whipped cream to top your espresso, or add some to your tea
                      I like to make chocolate whipped cream (cream, sweetener of choice like stevia, a little vanilla, cocoa powder) and have been known to just eat that for dessert...you know, in small amounts...usually...
                      +1 for cream in eggs, I like to do a tbsp or two per 3 eggs, whisk, then scramble
                      Creme fraiche - cream + a tbsp or two of buttermilk, let it sit out on the counter for 24-48 hours. It's divine. You're supposed to leave the lid to the container cracked for a little air flow. Scramble with eggs, top off a baked potato, or use in place of sour cream

                        Hey Everyone

                        Thanks for all the ideas! Unfortunately I don't currently don't have access to eggs. I have celiac disease and unfortunately I react to grain fed eggs the same way I react to grains... Same thing with milk. My parents have chickens that they don't feed wheat but unfortunately I am 2 states away from them at the moment. I am currently in the process of designing a chicken coop for my back yard. Super excited about having access to eggs again.

                          Leeks.

                          Cut the leek up, saute in some butter and when kind of soft, put some cream in until your happy with the amount of 'sauce' you have, grate fresh nutmeg, turn it down low and let it soften up to your desired texture.
                          Life. Be in it.

                            Do you have a stand mixer? Pour it into the bowl and use the wire whisk attachment on medium for 10 minutes and make butter. Then rinse out the buttermilk (and save it!) and bam! You have grass-fed, fresh made butter.

                              Just like, my opinion, man, but I really like cream and sliced banana. Also, the recipe for Chicken with 40 Cloves of Garlic on NomNom Paleo is both delicious, and involves cream.
