I thought you could freeze double cream...

well, you can freeze it, obviously. But now its de-frosted it is kind of 'gritty'.

Anyone else done this?

Do I have to throw it away, I was wondering about using it to make ice-cream (I have an ice-cream machine thingy)

AFAIK you can freeze it as long as you've whipped it first. No idea about the ice cream sorry, Ben and Jerry makes ours grin

You have to whip it first. i don't see how making it into ice cream would make it less gritty? You could try, if the only other option is chucking it, although would it not be a health risk as you are refreezing it?

oh, trixy - had not thought of that re-freeze thing. Down the sink it goes. What a waste.

Double cream isn't great for making ice cream - try whipping cream (don't whip it!) - it works far better but I can't remember why.

Can you not make a horribly fattening, yummy pasta sauce (or summink) with the double cream, to avoid wastage?
