I have a full jar of raw cream in my fridge and would like to make ice cream but all the recipes call for heavy cream. Is it possible to substitute heavy cream with regular cream with good results? Will adding butter to cream make it a good substitute for heavy cream?
making ice cream with raw cream
You don't need to add butter.
You can cut back a little on the milk part, use more of the cream- many ice cream recipes call for cream & milk- Plenty of people make ice cream using just light cream, or half and half. If you are worried it won't be rich enough, do a cooked custard base and use plenty of egg yolks.
I don't mind using raw yolks at all
How much egg yolks would you use for 3 cups of cream?
I would use 6 (you could use less, but it's nice!) Make meringues out of the whites, or macaroons with coconut. The raw yolks lend a good texture and make it enriched with nutritional benefits. My kids eat ice cream like this and I feel like they're getting something that's very healthful for them. Vanilla, chocolate, or?
