Where can i find Clotted Cream?

    Recommended Posts

    Does anyone know of a place I can get Clotted Cream either in the city or Rostrevor area? Coles and Woolwoths online don't have it listed as a stocked product and after a quick look around the Central Markets the other day I couldn't find it.

     

    Its 'A Taste of Harmony' at work next week and I have promised I will bring a Cream Tea....

    You can get clotted cream In food land. I've had it before, it only comes In a small tub and is expensive though. I reckon you'll have to substitute with whipped cream and hope no one notices! ;-)

    Hi Kirbs!

     

    You can make your own, i've tried it and it really does work!

     

     

     

    Pour the cream into a heavy-bottomed oven-safe pot. The cream should come up the side of the pot somewhere between one and three inches.

     

    Cover the pot and put it in the oven on 80c

     

    Leave the covered pot in the oven for at least 8 hours. You'll know it's done because there will be a thick yellowish skin above the cream, as shown above. That skin is the clotted cream.

     

    Let the pot cool at room temperature, then put it in the refrigerator for another 8 hours.

     

    Remove the clotted cream from the top of the pot. The cream that is underneath it can still be used for baking.

    Hi there,

    we bought whipping cream from Coles in December for Xmas, and when we opened it,we found it was as near to Cornish clotted cream as you could get,and was delicious !! Being from Cornwall this was a pleasant surprise.Hope this helps you out.

     

    cheers

    Tried the local foodland and after speaking with the manager (first two guys I spoke to had never heard of Clotted Cream!) although they normally it, they were all out! Making it doesn't sound too difficult but very time consuming so that's out. Looks like it will have to be thick dollup cream instead. I'm the only person from the UK in the office so will be the only one who knows its not right.
