Dear Aunty Yochana

Pls tell me the difference between heavy cream, sour cream and light cream.
In this recipe, what can I use to substitute the heavy cream? Will whipping cream do?

Tks for enlightening.

Hi helen,

they sell heavy cream in Jasons supermarket but I normally use Cream that has 35% fat like President or Elle vire. Sour Cream has a sourish taste and it's easily availble in all supermarkets and NTUC. Instead of heavy cream, you can use Non-dairy like Pour N Whip.
