I’ve been assembling ingredients to make a batch of ice cream and to also prep some recipes from a cookbook I’m reviewing. Multiple recipe sources are telling me to not confuse whipping cream for heavy cream.
However, every container of cream in my grocery stores are labeled as “Heavy Whipping Cream”. Heavy cream reportedly has a higher fat content than whipping cream. Unfortunately, it has also become a loc ness monster of sorts in my parts.
And I was so looking forward to being a stickler for details!
The Heavy Whipping Cream label info:
Serving Size 1 Tbs (15 mL)
Calories: 50, Fat cal: 50
Total Fat 6g, Sat fat: 3.5g
I’m completely amused that there is no calcium listed in cream! Sweets responded, looking over the calories from fat: cause there isn’t room.
Cook’s Illustrated asks the question I originally asked: What’s the difference between heavy and whipping cream?
