Tip for using heavy cream

Heavy Cream
Selecting heavy cream for whipping can be a tricky process. Heavy
cream tends to be ultra-pasteurized, which makes it whip to a lower volume
when the cream still has one month of shelf life. If you want to use heavy
cream for icing, buy containers that are ready to expire. You'll get a
really thick, fluffy finished product.

I've heard that if you look for the Organic stuff you can avoid the "Ultra Pasturization" and it does make a difference!
Cooking is like love, it should be entered into with abandon or not at all. Oregon native transplanted to Chicago....
