What can I do with a big pot of couple cream that needs to be used?

Thrilling eh grin

Bought it to make a pudding which didn't happen. It needs to be eaten/ used today but we aren't generally pudding eaters (ok well I would be, but I'm supposed to be on a health kick).

Can I freeze it? Either neat, or made into something? Thank you in advance smile

Gah! Double cream!!! Couple cream sounds quite disturbing

Make fudge for christmas. There is a recipe on bbc food that uses double cream and is lovely.

Add it to soup. Or whip it up with fruit and meringues? Or put it on hot chocolate. Or I wonder, can you freeze it - you can freeze milk. (Yes couple cream ... we'd better not go there).

How big a pot? You could use it for something savoury - potato gratin, creamy sauce... Depends what sort of health kick you're on though! grin

Mr google says you can freeze cream.

Creamy salmon pasta sauce (add leeks and white wine if you have any).

Put it in a jam jar, with some crushed garlic and shake. Keep shaking. It will turn to butter soon enough. Tip out the buttercream and keep shaking. When you have shaken all the buttercream out, add some clean water and keep shaking, the water cleans the buttercream out, keep tipping the cloudy water out and adding fresh. When it comes out clean, tip your fresh garlic butter onto greaseproof paper, and roll into a garlic butter stick and freeze it. you can slice off coin sized pieces to make quick garlic bread over the festive season [or any evening of the week].

Thank you!! I've got about 400mls

Fudge a great idea! Can you freeze fudge? Or how long does it last?

Um Chuck I think I love you. I'm going to serve homemade butter for my first ever time hosting Christmas this year, and be very smug about it!

I'd melt with good chocolate and shape into truffles... then eat them all myself grin

Fudge should last about 3 months.

Teddy you can also use an electric whisk to make butter rather than a jar and shake. You will still need to "rinse" it to wash out the buttermilk
