45% cream

I bought some at the farmers market yesterday thinking it would be a nice treat. Part of the appeal was the cute little bottle. It was quite pricy and I don't want it to go to waste. Any suggestions on how to use it?

Lucky you!

Is it ultra pasteurized??? Hope not. That ultra high heat they use on dairy may kill the bugs, but it also kills the flavor.

I'd make creme fraiche- even if the cream is ultra pasteurized. Just put the cream in a slightly bigger glass jar, add two tablespoons of cultured (store bought) buttermilk, cover with paper towel or coffee filter, and let sit on your counter for 24-48 hours.

Cream will thicken up and the taste is superb.

Oh my, that is a great idea! Will frozen buttermilk work? I have some. It is pasturized as all dairy in this province is but it is not homogenized.

That would go straight into my morning coffee!

Or perhaps a simple sauce for steak or some other protein - pan juices, splash of wine or good beer, reduce to almost nothing, splash in a good amount of that delicious cream and cook over med heat til bubbling, reduce a bit to thicken. Add a few green peppercorns for steak if you like them, add a few capers and dash of lemon juice for over fish or chicken. MMMMMMMM.

I don't think frozen buttermilk will work, though I admit I've never tried it.

The creme fraiche depends on the LIVE cultures to thicken and freezing has probably killed those cultures.

If you have some fresh unflavored yogurt, you could try that.
