I am trying to follow a recipe that has "sterilized cream" as an ingredient.

I've never heard of this before. Where would I find it in the supermarket? (I bought single cream, but I'm not sure if it's OK to use that instead?)

no it is carnation evaporated milk which used to be known as sterilised cream. What are you making?

Oh, thanks for that! (just logged back on). I was making vegetable biriyani - I used the single cream, but it worked out fine

I absolutely loved this when I was a child, served with tinned fruit, Christmas pud or crumble! It's quite thick, and best served chilled. Never cooked with it though. It can usually be found next to other tinned/longlife milk products. Used it regularly until I became lactose intolerant sad I fancy some now envy

The sterilised cream I had as a kid was called Dancow...a danish was the best.
The only one that came close after that was Co-op brand Sterilised cream but now you can only seem to buy the extra thick cream which is ok but not like the Danish one and not so readily available.

I remember one from Nestle. Used to love it as a kid. It was a small tin and was a thick cream . Nothing like evaporated milk (which I also love!
