What is Devonshire cream?
Clotted cream, also known as Devonshire cream, comes from the English counties of Devon and Cornwall. It is made by heating full fat cow's milk, producing clots of cream to rise to the surface. Clotted creams have longer shelf life since the whey from the milk is removed as much as possible to create the thickest, richest cream. Authentic clotted creams are made in Devon and Cornwall, hence the name Devonshire cream of Devon and Cornish cream of Cornwall. Clotted cream, especially clotted cream from Devon, is less yellow due to lower carotene levels in the grass and is regularly used in baking.
Clotted creams are processed by sitting the cow's milk for 12 to 24 hours in shallow pans, then slowly heating them at low temperatures. This method enables the clots to rise and be skimmed off, making fresh clotted creams to serve on your table.
This type of cream has a fat content of 55%. which makes it have the highest butterfat percentage of all creams. As much as you enjoy devouring this heavenly spread, consume it in moderation and a little less frequently.

The tradition started a long time in the early 19th century when the elite needed a light meal to fill a hungry tummy that during that period, typically has breakfast and dinner as the main meals of the day. The British upper class tea time would normally happen around four in the afternoon and be served on low tables. The term "high tea" is coined by serving the upper class referred to as "high class". The middle and lower classes would have theirs at five or six in the afternoon, served on high tables, to be followed by a late dinner. This afternoon delight is prepared with tea and food with savory and sweet tastes.
