I’m almost embarrassed at how easy this is but, as you will find out, simple though it is to make, its flavour is deep, complex and utterly compelling.

Desserts

Storage

Double cream will keep for up to five days in the fridge.

Preparation

Serve double cream whipped or as it is alongside desserts, or use it as the basis for desserts such as mousse, crème brulée and cheesecake. Decorate cakes with stiffly whipped cream or use it to fill a Victoria sponge. Stir double cream into savoury dishes such as risotto or soup to add richness and flavour.
