I froze some heavy cream that I whipped to eat with my strawberries, and I was wondering if anyone has any suggestions on how to use it?

Just tonight I finished off some heavy cream that I froze last week before my trip. I used some of it on Sunday, in my coffee... it was kinda weird in how it separated. I used the rest of it tonight, in some scrambled eggs.

If it is pasteurized and has gone really sour (i.e. it's chunky), then it has probably putrefied and you just need to toss it. If it was raw cream (i.e. unpasteurized), it can get sour and still be edible for as long as a week or two. The sour... (more)

If you drop 1/2 of those cups for a few weeks you will create a small calorie (fat) deficit in your diet and it will likely help you to drop the belly fat a bit faster. Otherwise, drink as much as you want!
