We have been rationing our cream since before Thanksgiving. Even our own hometown of Athens has been out of cream for over a day at a time. The Snowville Creamery crème fraîche sales are also very high. We are choosing to short the whipping cream and try to keep the crème fraîche on the shelves.
If you can’t find whipping cream, but there is crème fraîche, please consider that the crème fraîche may be a very good replacement for whipping cream. Traditionally, cream was always sour, like crème fraîche so traditional cream and whipping cream recipes were really referring to something more like crème fraîche.
During the normal year, we barely have enough cream. Unfortunately, when consumption goes up around the holidays, the cows don’t give any more cream in their milk.
Thanks for your understanding and appreciation of the wonderful cream we all enjoy.
