Neither here nor there…

All clotty and nice...

You know how people say that you can never have too much of a good thing…

After a week of travelling in the deep south – or west countries as they call it in the UK – I have definitely had too much of one of the isle’s greatest delicacies…

Clotted Cream…

It only has a minimum of 55% saturated fat, what could possibly be wrong about that?!
(please note that normal cream has around 30% and heavy double cream has a maximum of 40%)
I am amazed that after an overdose of cream (3 times a day and I just couldnt resist!),  I can still fit into my clothes…

Creammmmmmm...

May be it is all a lie…
May be cream is not fattening or unhealthy for you… or may be there is just something special about the happy cows in Devon and Cornwall?
Surely it has to be the process of the clotting… Or the fact they use un-pasteurised milk… right?
Could it be that the scones somehow balance out the multi saturated fat? or has all the creamy goodness simply got better?

Hmmm off course this can’t be true…

Have mercy!

But I dare you all to try a regime of 3x clotted cream a day…
As a pudding after lunch (meringue pie is a sure killer),
at tea time on a pile of scones (yes how could you resist) and lastly
as a final stroke of mercy after dinner (why not try it in on and next to Summer pudding with red fruit… a mere trifle… This is the British summer equivalent of Christmas pudding… anyone still able to stand?! Get off the floor you or simply roll to the nearest bed…)

Cream cream glorious creammmm

Hope I will be able to find some in the States…
Then again may be I shouldnt…
