Dairy Products in Canada....

I'm puzzled to know why Double (Heavy) Cream is not available in supermarkets over here? a lot of recipes call for it, but the only place i know that sells is is Sunworks at the farmers market in Calgary & even there it is very expensive.

The same story with creme fraiche - all over the place back home in the UK but i haven't seen it out here.

Am I missing something?

    I can't say that I know why, but I lament the fact as well. I was told that Community Foods now carries creme fraiche, I believe that it is LIberty brand. I ahven't checked it out yet.

      I've seen it now and again at Co-op or Safeway. The problem is, they never put it in the dairy section next to milk. Look around the deli, maybe next to the hummus, or even the cheese aisle. Think I've seen double cream at Lina's.
