Equipment

  • A large wide heavy based saucepan or saute pan
  • A large shallow glass or ceramic dish

Ingredients

  • 750 ml double / heavy cream Guernsey cream if available
  • 30 g butter - ideally Guernsey butter

Instructions

  • Put the cream and butter in a large wide heavy based saucepan and place over a low to medium heat. Stir constantly with a wooden spoon until it reaches a simmer.
  • Don’t let it boil over and keep stirring so it doesn’t catch on the bottom.
  • Let it reduce by half – about 20 minutes.
  • Once it has reduced, pour into a shallow dish, the more surface area the better !
  • Let it cool, before covering and chilling in the fridge overnight.
  • Keep in the fridge in an airtight container for up to 7 days. Once opened use within 3 days.
