light cream [lahyt kreem] noun
One of many cow’s milk-based dairy creams used in the sweet kitchen, along with heavy cream, half-and-half, whipping cream, etc. Light cream typically has 20% butterfat, making it richer than half-and-half, but less rich than heavy cream. It will not whip.
As with all dairy products, perishability is an issue. Do not store on the door of the fridge, as that’s the warmest area. Store on a shelf and keep track of use-by dates.
