Heavy cream in YEG (Edmonton) - where to buy??
For some reason I have never been able to find heavy cream at any of the major grocery stores. I have been buying whipping cream (33-35% fat) but I imagine that it probably has extra sugar in it that heavy cream doesn't? When I was back in Montreal over the holidays, I noticed that you can buy 18% fat heavy cream. Does anyone know of any place in Edmonton where this can be found? Thanks!
What is labelled as "whipping cream" here in Alberta is just cream that is 33-35%MF, no added sugar (sugar is only added when it is already whipped, like in those nasty aerosol cans). 18% cream is typically labelled as "coffee cream" here, and you should be able to buy it at pretty much any grocery store.
As far as I know, when recipes refer to "heavy cream" they typically mean cream with as much fat as possible, and "whipping cream" would be the highest fat I know of available here, unless anyone else is aware of anything else. I don't think there is anything actually labelled "heavy cream" here - probably a difference in terminology in US vs. Canada.
