Over here at CC Headquarters, we’re staunch fans of all things fresh, innovative and delicious – bonus points if it’s made here in NYC! That’s why this weekend, I’ll be happily trekking out to Long Island to check out Brooklyn Creamery’s all new, all natural Fresh Dairy Cream which models itself after British double cream.
If you’ve never tried it, double cream is a thick, rich concoction with a texture similar to sour cream or crème fraîche but much smoother and without the tartness. What excites me most about Brooklyn Creamery’s version is the fact that there’s no artificial ingredients, no added salts or sugars, and no carbs! If you’re like me and use a lot of heavy cream in your cooking, this product has the potential to take your favorite soup, dip, sauce and dessert recipes to the next level.
And if double cream’s a litle too rich for your tastes, there’s also single cream which is less thick and half the fat. Single cream can be used in scramble eggs or to make homemeade coffee creamer – just mix it with vanilla extract or your favorite flavoring.
If you’re up for giving this new product a try, Brooklyn Creamery will be hosting in-store demos at grocery stores all over. I’ll be live-tweeting at the Merrick location this Sunday to check it out, so definitely swing by and say hi if you’re in the neighborhood! Otherwise, you can click here for a full list of demo locations near you. And don’t forget to download a coupon here before you head out.
Stay tuned for my full report and recipe coming your way soon!
