clotted cream, what can I use it for? Any ideas?

Went to the supermarket the other day.
I always check the fridge where they have stuff about to pass its sell by date.
Loads of tubs of clotted cream selling for next to nothing.
So I bought the whole lot.
Now that I have it, what can I do with it?
Any ideas?

Do you eat deserts Abdul .... a blob of clotted cream n a desert is lovely.

When I was a child we used to spread it on some nice crusty bread and top it with jam.

Clotted cream and jam on scones ... yum !

add it to rice pudding as it cooks , I think it would be lovely in some of the creamy milk based indian deserts .

It also freezes well .

I am  mrgreen  mrgreen  mrgreen 

I once bought some Australian "clotted cream" but it wasn't a patch on the real thing.  There is no substitute for some things  sad  sad

Send some to me?  I don't mind past-its-use-by-date dairy products  lol

Scones with strawberry jam and clotted cream.
You could also try using it in cheese sauce/white sauce instead of the milk.

You can't get more real than this. This is Cornish.
I have been spreading it on toast, cause I couldn't think of anything else to do with it and there is so many.

Joobes, I wish. She is at the final stages of a pregnancy right now, so all I am getting is a "my back hurts, it is all your fault!"

Not sure clotted cream would be the right cream for that though?
It is as thick as butter.

If its cornish clotted cream then only one thing for it.... gotta be with scones and strawberry jam. Only question is do you put the cream on last or the jam?    yummy

It's got to be jam first then cream on top.  Isn't that the only way?
