Clotted cream, also known as Devonshire cream or Cornish cream, is a thick, silky, yellow cream, with 55 percent butterfat and a distinctive deep yellow crust on the surface. It has the consistency of soft butter and originates from Devon and Cornwall in Southwestern England, but is now also made in Yorkshire
It is made by indirectly heating full cream unpasteurized cow’s milk using steam or a water bath and then leaving it in shallow pans to cool slowly. During this time the cream to rises to the surface and forms ‘clots’ or ‘clouts’
The taste is described as a “nutty-cooked-milk flavour” or “rich sweet flavour” with a grainy texture. (WIKI)
Clotted cream is usually served with freshly baked scones, or other freshly baked goods, or desserts. It’s also made into ice cream.
Cornish clotted cream has the Protected Designation of Origin (PDO) status in the EU.
