If you can find Lewis Road Double Cream use that, otherwise just ordinary plain cream.

OMG. Lewis Road sounds divine.Love there products. thanks so much for advise.Much appreciated

Heavy cream or double cream is usually an English ingredient with about 44% fat.

Single cream much less than that.

In New Zealand, cream has about 40% fat - so if you are using an English recipe calling for double cream - the product we call "cream" will work just fine.

(Not sure I have got the %ages accurate, but that are about right)

You can use the Carnation Cooking Cream which is good because it doesn't split when heated as ordinary cream does sometimes. It is in the supermarket with the UHT milk, cream, condensed milk etc. It is so handy to have in the pantry as you don't have to refrigerate it and it keeps for months. It is great for making Lemonade scones too. . I just put about 3 good cups self raising flour in a bowl, pour in the cream and fill the cream container with lemonade and tip that in. Mix with a knife and add more flour if necessary. Then just make as normal.

Have posted the recipe on a new thread for one pot chicken Alfredo.

Does this mean that it keeps for months in the fridge after opening?

Chef_kclu, Jul 9, 4:30 pm

i would think that it means that it is shelf stable until it is opened.
After opening, it would keep in the fridge for 3-10 days (look on the packet for how long )

Chef_duckmoon, Jul 9, 6:21 pm

I think that is correct duckmoon. I have never had to keep any as I use the whole pottle.
