You might remember that dollop of double cream sitting atop of the apple crumble...
As much as I'd love to keep this cream a secret it really does deserve some kind of attention.
This is the Meander Valley Double Cream. It's a cream I would look at week after week but never buy it, opting instead for the Elgaar Dairies Double Cream.
The Meander Valley is located in the central north of Tasmania, so named for the meandering river that makes it's way through.
This double cream is hand produced in small batches - this allows seasonal variations in the milk to be adjusted so to obtain a consistent product. Nothing is added - it's just the product of pure milk. For those that like to know these things, it comes in at a minimum 56% fat.
I'll wait while you all lick the screen.
I do say that you know it's a good cream when you can turn your spoon upside down and it doesn't drip...
that's just simple scooped out and holding tightly on spoon, turn it upside down and from side to side and it will stick - now that is GREAT cream.
Taste wise, there's a lovely natural subtle sweetness in the cream, it's not cloying, it doesn't feel heavy or fatty. It just tastes very pure.
Just a dollop of this placed on any dessert will immediately transform it into something divine.
Now for those that can buy this, please leave some for me!
