Home-made ice cream is surprisingly easy, and tastes totally delicious with creamy vanilla flavours.

Storage

Double cream will keep for up to five days in the fridge.

Preparation

Serve double cream whipped or as it is alongside desserts, or use it as the basis for desserts such as mousse, crème brulée and cheesecake. Decorate cakes with stiffly whipped cream or use it to fill a Victoria sponge. Stir double cream into savoury dishes such as risotto or soup to add richness and flavour.
