Clotted Cream for Afternoon Tea

The History and Tradition of Afternoon Tea

The tradition of afternoon tea started in the early 19th Century when the wealthy set felt they needed a ‘pick-me-up’ in the afternoon. This is not surprising because they typically ate just 2 meals a day; breakfast and dinner, so the skipping of that 3rd meal led to a mid afternoon slump hence the creation of afternoon tea.

Ingredients
  • 1-16 ounce container pasteurized heavy cream
Instructions
  1. Place a large heatproof bowl over a large saucepan of water (make sure the water is not touching the bottom of the bowl.
  2. Add the cream to the bowl and bring the water to a simmer.
  3. Using a candy thermometer, bring the temperature of the cream to 180 degrees F (82 degrees C) and maintain that temperature for 1 hour.
  4. After 1 hour, turn off the heat and remove the bowl from the boiler.
