I cook a lot, almost every single meal we eat as a family I cook. A few years ago I had to go gluten-free for health reason and since have been on the lookout for products to use. I will be honest in saying that I wasn’t very familiar with dairy cream, let alone single and double cream. To me, cream is something you add to your coffee, not something so versatile that you can make a multitude of recipes.
BK Creamery offers cream that is gluten-free, kosher, uses rBST Free Milk with has no artificial ingredients, no added salts/sugars & no carbs. How great does that sound? It sounds awesome to me since I am trying to eat healthier and get my family to eat better as well.
If you are like me and wondered about dairy cream, it is much richer and has more uses for cooking than heavy cream and comes in Extra Thick Single Cream and Extra Double Thick Cream.
EXTRA THICK SINGLE CREAM
- Same great flavor of our Extra Thick Double Cream but with half the fat (21%)
- Uses include cooking, spooning
- Delicate process used to make all natural cream
- Add to sauces, soups, drinks and desserts
- Not suitable for whipping
EXTRA THICK DOUBLE CREAM
- Full fat (42%)
- Uses include but not limited to cooking, spooning, whipping
- Whip and add to sauces, soups, vegetable gratins, quiches and custards. Pour over desserts. Add to cocktails.
- It has a light airy texture when whipped, so is ideal for cake fillings, mousses, ice creams and cheesecakes.
- Pure cream is commonly used in reduction and pasta sauces.
- Substitute for milk and butter in scone-making.
Here are the simple ingredients of both: Cream, Carrageenan, Nisin
What is Carrageenan? It is an all natural stabilizer made from sea algae. Since cream changes with seasons depending on a cows’ diet, Carrageenan keeps our cream stable throughout the year.
What is Nisin? It is an all natural preservative made from fermented milk.
BK cream is NOT ULTRA PASTURIZED the way typical heavy creams are, which keeps more nutrients in the cream as well as giving it a thicker, richer taste. This is important since you can use the cream in many dessert recipes where consistency and taste matters a lot.
Now, if you are like me and wonder how you can use this cream BK Creamery offers some great ways you can use it and create decadent recipes with it:
- Spread onto toast, waffles, bagels, scones
- Add texture and thicken dips, soups & sauces like Creamy Alfredo, Creamy Cheese Sauce, Pumpkin Soup, Chowders, Guacamole, Spicy Buffalo Dip
- Single Cream can be used to make a homemade coffee creamer – just mix with any flavoring. Ex: Vanilla extract, Peppermint oil
- Single Cream can make scrambled eggs creamier and thicker.
- Double Cream can be whipped to make homemade whip cream. Add any type of flavor/sweetener by mixing with cream for just a few minutes. Ex: Crushed Oreos, brown sugar cinnamon, honey, vanilla extract
- Double Cream can be used to make a homemade spread. Whip double cream into a thick consistency (similar to butter). Leave in refrigerator overnight and enjoy a thick homemade spread.
- Dollop onto fresh fruits like strawberries, peaches, blueberries
- Pipe layering onto cakes
- Making homemade ice cream & gelato
- Create delicate mousses
- Topping pies and other desserts
