You can definitely froth heavy cream, but the technique is different. You need to let more air in at the beginning of the process by letting it 'spit' at the top of the liquid, and then make sure you re incorporate all those bubbles by having the... (more)

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)
