  • its best not to freeze standard cream it will never defrost properly as the fats and water partially separates and it just goes weird. there are some uht reduced cream tetras that you can buy that do freeze fine

  • You can certainly freeze cream. You won’t be able to whip it when you defrost it though. You’ll only be able to use it as straight cream

  • Interesting reading, I’ve never had any luck with it.

  • You sure can freeze it. You will only be able to use it in cooking tho, you won’t be able to whip it after freezing

  • Really interesting reading the comments given to this!

  • On a related topic, I see Nestle makes a shelf-stable cream now so you can always have some on hand.

  • It has never seem to split for me? :)

  • I’ve freezed cream in leftovers and I’ve had no issues either.
