Thread: excess heavy cream problem again

    Default excess heavy cream problem again

    I always buy too much... just wanted to make some caramel sauce and
    now there's all this left over heavy cream. Better use it or lose
    it but I have few ideas since I'm not a regular heavy cream user.
    Looks like I'm not the only one with this problem:

    http://frugalliving.about.com/od/rec...eavy_Cream.htm

    Hmm I have a bunch of potatoes and some chicken stock... could make
    another potato soup.

    Any favorite ideas for using heavy cream? I'm thinking less dessert
    and more dinner, something other than mac n cheese, or curry....

    You can whip it up and freeze it. Just put globs of it on waxed paper,
    freeze and the seal it up in bags or something. Remove it from the
    freeze about an hour before you need it and it will thaw nicely.

    It is also helps to make a nice sauce,e specially is something has been
    cooked in butter. One of my favourite quickie recipes used thin chicken
    breasts seasoned with salt and pepper and fried in butter. Remove the
    breasts and keep them warm, then throw in chopped onion, cook it for
    about a minute then add some sliced red pepper and cook until the onions
    are soft. Stir in about a tablespoon each of Dijon mustard, mango
    chutney and red wine vinegar and add some heavy cream, stir it around
    over medium heat to make the sauce. Return the breasts to the sauce and
    serve on rice.

    Champagne cream sauce. Excellent with seafood (lobster ravioli comes to
    mind).

    3 Tbs. unsalted butter
    3Tbs. flour
    1 large shallot, peeled and finely chopped
    3/4 c. champagne
    1/2 c. heavy (whipping) cream
    salt & pepper to taste

    Melt butter in a medium saucepan. Add the shallot and saute over
    gentle heat for about 5 minutes until softened and golden but not
    browned. Add flour and stir and cook for 1-2 minutes. Gradually add
    the champagne. Blend in heavy cream, whisking until smooth. Bring all
    ingredients to a low simmer for another 2 minutes. Add salt & pepper
    to taste.

    Creamed spinach or creamed peas. Or, if you're not too concerned about
    fat, it makes a mighty fine sausage gravy; or creamed eggs on toast for
    b'fast.

    Here is one of my favorite soups, you could use up the heavy cream in
    place of the half and half....It would be
    even yummier.

    thanks Dave

    I would probably do some substitutions with the chicken but that's a
    good idea, as well as freezing

    Mine is chicken with a cream sauce.

    Saute onions and when soft add chicken stock and chicken pieces with
    seasoning. Simmer until chicken is cooked. Remove chicken and boil down
    stock. Add plenty of heavy cream and continue to boil until sauce thickens.
    Add chicken and reheat gently!

    champagne & lobster, that's fancy! I might make it a "cheap chardonnay
    cream sauce" instead...

    Coarse chopped (some prefer sliced) hard-boiled eggs, in a cream sauce,
    served over toasted bread (English muffins are a good choice).

    Surprisingly..... no. I mix the mustard, vinegar and mustard together,
    stir around in pan and then add the cream.

    BTW.... it works best with small, thin breasts that will be cooked
    through by the time they are nicely browned. This is a 10 minute dish
    and it is really tasty.

    With sardines or kippers, I'm sure.
