How to Make Homemade Heavy Cream

Heavy cream or heavy cream is a key ingredient in both sweet and savory recipes.

Heavy cream can turn anything into a delicious, rich, and creamy delight, whether you’re making ice cream, cauliflower soup, or Bolognese sauce.

Heavy fat is not the same as single cream, skim milk, or whole milk.

It is very thick due to 36 to 40 percent of fat content.

If you’re in the middle of the cooking process and don’t have any cream left, don’t worry!

Useful Tips Before Making Your Own Cream

Useful Tips Before Making Your Own Cream

To make your own heavy cream, you only need two ingredients: milk and butter.

If you want to get the best possible results with your skincare routine, follow the tips below:

Use only unsalted butter.

A salted one will ruin the taste of your cream, so always choose an unsalted option.

Before cooking, let your milk and butter come to room temperature to prevent curdling.

Do not use homemade heavy cream in recipes that require whipping.

Now, it’s time to start the cooking process.

First, take the butter that has come to room temperature and melt it.

When using the microwave, put the butter in a microwave-safe bowl and wait for at least ten seconds until it melts.

If you are melting the butter on the stove, place it in a heavy saucepan and turn on a low heat to prevent it from burning.

Butter melts between 82 and 97ºF.

Watch it carefully and remove the butter from the heat when 3/4 of it has melted.

Finally, take a wooden spoon or rubber spatula and spread the melted butter on the bottom of the pan.

Add a tablespoon of melted butter to the whole milk.

(If you want milk with a low fat content or skim milk, you will need to add a tablespoon of flour to help your cream thicken.) This special process is called “tempering.” Do not pour all the melted butter into the milk at once, as it will quickly heat up and curdle.

After that, pour all the tempered milk into the rest of the butter and cook it in low heat mode.

Your homemade heavy cream is ready.
