Deliciously thick and creamy English Clotted Cream is surprisingly easy to make. Heavy Whipped Cream that is not ultra-pasteurized and patience are all you need. This recipe for clotted cream takes a minimum of 24 hours to make so make sure you plan ahead.
- 2 pints Heavy Whipping Cream (not ultra-pasteurized, I found mine at Whole Foods)
- Turn your oven on to 170F or 76C. Pour your cream into a 9X13 ceramic dish- you can use a different size dish- the main point is you want your cream to be shallow and only come up about 1.5-2 inches high.
- Place the dish in the oven and let it cook for 12 hours. Usually, I do this overnight. Then take the dish out of the oven and let it cool on a wire rack for about an hour. Then wrap it in plastic wrap and it needs to chill in the fridge for at least 12 hours or up to 24 hours.
- Once cooled use a spoon to scoop the clots of cream on top into a container. Do not throw away the liquid milk you can save it and use for another recipe, like scones. Store the clotted cream in the fridge, I find sometimes it separates like Greek Yogurt does- just mix it back together. Use within a few days.
