New Food Prep Item- Table Cream-
I'm currently reading The Storm Gourmet- A Guide to Creating Extraordinary Meals Without Electricity from the library. I was looking for "outside the box" cooking ideas. One of the items she kept mentioning was "table cream". I did some research, thinking it was more of a tropical item. It's used a lot in Mexican cooking for things like flan, or other desserts. It's basically unsweetened, canned light cream. It got me thinking of all the "what ifs"-
no milk at the stores, water it down.
no cream " " use it instead.
no half and half " "
and whatever else you can think of?
And there's no refrigeration needed until after it's opened. It was about $1.18 here at WalMart for a 7 1/2 ounce can. There's info on the label. I bought several and added it to my pantry.
The ingredients on the label are- light cream, carrageenan, sodium alginate, disodium phosphate, sodium citrate. Product of Mexico
I'll do a taste test soon and tell you what I think. Some said it's richer tasting than cream, and a cross between sour cream and cream...
It's finally cooling off more. 80's this week, 70's next week. The horrible forest fire smoke is dissipating finally. Hoping for some much needed rain soon. At least the sky is blue again, with just a little haze...
