BUTTER AND BUTTERMILK
Less people know that with whipping cream, if you whip it past the stage of whipped cream, it will actually separate into butter and buttermilk. The ability to make fresh butter in any circumstance is awesome and with a little salt, you will have some of the best butter you have ever made. The buttermilk is good for making biscuits and other recipes. Some even choose to drink it straight.
There are many pasta sauces that can be made with cream. A quick alfredo sauce can be made with some cream, butter, garlic and parmesan. All of those should be in your food storage now, so you can eat well no matter what. Other sauces can be made like carbonara, as well as using the cream for many baking uses and can be used as milk in many recipes.
It last for about 6 months according to the label, however after contacting the company they said it will last up to a year if stored properly. So that can be a nice add to your food storage, very versatile and last a while. It also is cheaper than fresh cream that you buy at the store. Also another bonus is the fact that it takes so much less whipping then with traditional whipping cream, so just be careful that once the separation occurs you don’t reinstitute the butter and milk.
So it may not be the best thing since white bread, but it is a nice add on to any food storage, or to have it around the house for when you run out.
