Freezing cream

Haven't a clue what galangal is, or need to know what to use if you can't buy creme fraiche locally? We're sure our knowledgeable members will be able to point you in the right direction...

Freezing cream

If I freeze some whipping cream will I be able to whip it later? I needed to get it today but don't want to use it (in a banoffee pie) until Friday. Might it work to whip it and then freeze it?

Thanks for any advice.

Yes, you must whip it first.

When is the use-by date for the cream? I thought it would have been OK until Friday just in the fridge.

Cream.

I'd have just kept it in the fridge till Friday. One day won't make any difference with cream.

I too would have left in fridge the extra day or so too - depends though how quickly the end result would be eaten i suppose.

but yes cream is freezable - but not single cream (well i haven;t found it works - goes extremely watery) sour cream freezes well too.

on another point - whats the difference between whipping cream and double cream? cos i whip double cream too? and you don't need to pre whip before freezing, well i never have, and it held up well.

The difference is the fat content. In the UK whipping cream is 35% fat and double cream 48%. That's why double cream freezes OK without whipping.

Apparently in Australia there are no regulations so it's up to the manufacturer! I didn't know that before I looked it up just now!!
