Heavy cream, what to make with it?

Friend of mine brought me half a gallon of heavy cream. It is thick, like sour cream or even thicker. It is fresh, straight from farm. I'm drawing a blank. What should I make with it?
Help me with ideas.

Also I was going to post this from the phone but was not able to. What was doing wrong?

Check out recipes for double cream and you find a lot and you can also make clotted cream with it.

You can make a lot of butter and with that cream, I bet it would be good butter, too.

The recipe forums require you to specify whether the thread is a recipe, but there is no way to do that on the app - only on the website.

Aha, good, so I am not completely dumb. It kept asking me that, but I couldn't figure out how to do that.

Ways to use cream (I easily go through about a quart a week just by myself):
  • Make homemade sour cream
  • Make homemade ice cream
  • Make homemade butter
  • Add a splash to your scrambled eggs
  • Add a little to mashed potatoes
  • Add it to your egg nog
  • Add it to your coffee
  • Add it to pan sauces and gravies
  • My personal favorite: White Russians (before you ask, Charlie, it's a drink - has nothing to do with actual Russians)
