    Question Clotted Cream

    Is there an American equivalent to clotted cream? My DW has discovered scones and I'd like her to try them the way that I had them on my trips to England.

    I have seen something like a 'thickened' cream in the dairy section of larger grocery stores. It would be the equivalent.

    And this is what I got from Wikipedia: Clotted cream is a thick yellow cream made by heating unpasteurized cow's milk and then leaving it in shallow pans for several hours. During this time, the cream content rises to the surface and forms clots.

    When clotted cream is not commercially available, a reasonable copy may be made by combining two parts whole milk with one part whipping (heavy) cream, heating at the very lowest possible heat for a couple of hours until a skin forms, leaving it undisturbed overnight, and then harvesting the skin and its underclots. The remaining milk may be consumed or used in any number of recipes.
    Communicate. It can't make things any worse!

    We have a couple of british tearooms that serve clotted cream, not sure if they just sell it outright also. One of our upscale grocery stores and also Whole Food Market sells clotted cream. Not sure if you have a Whole Food Market in your area ??

    So...maybe a dumb ? here, but what difference does it make in the scones? Makes them richer?

    The tearoom that I go to once in a while, slices the scones , put the cream on and some strawberries and then puts the other slice of scones on top,it really tastes good.
