Q:

How do you scald cream?

A:

To scald cream, you need to heat it in a pot on the stove to just below the boiling point, which is about 180 degrees Fahrenheit. It should be removed from heat at that time to prevent it from boiling over and givng the cream a scorched taste. Scalding cream is most often called for when infusing other flavors into the cream for a specific recipe, including ice cream flavors.

  1. Pour light or heavy cream in a saucepan

    Pour the heavy cream into a large saucepan. Use a heavy-bottomed pot to keep the cream from burning easily. You may also use a double boiler to avoid burning the cream. The cream level should reach no more than halfway up the saucepan to prevent a mess if it accidentally starts to boil over.

  2. Place the saucepan over medium heat

    Turn the burner on to a medium-low to medium heat. Watch the cream closely to make sure it does not start to boil.

  3. Remove the cream from the heat just before boiling

    Wait for small bubbles to start forming on the edges of the cream, and then immediately remove it from the heat. Depending on the recipe you are using the scalded cream for, you may need to let it cool to a certain temperature before using it.

    Is it safe to eat sour cream after the expiration date?

    A:

    Sour cream may be safe to eat after the expiration date passes, but is ideally discarded after the expiration date since that date indicates the last date food or beverages are safe to consume. The expiration date on foods falls into the broader category of food labeling. The expiration date indicates the maximum date foods stay fresh; eating foods past expiration dates may pose health and safety risks, including dairy products like sour cream and milk.
