Topic/Question:  What is the difference between heavy cream, whipping cream, light creams, half-and-half and evaporated milk?

Answer: Varieties of cream are defined by how much milk fat they contain.

      - Heavy cream and heavy whipping cream are different names for essentially the same thing: cream that is 36% or more milk fat, and which doubles in volume when whipped.

      - Light whipping cream is between 30 and 36% milk fat, and can also be whipped.

      - Light cream, table cream, coffee cream or single cream are names for cream that is around 18% to 30% milk fat and will not whip.

      - Half-and-half is a mixture of cream and milk, and contains about 10 1/2 to 18% milk fat and will not whip.

      - Evaporated Milk is canned whole milk that contains at least 6.5% milk fat. Due to how evaporated milk is processed, it will whip for a short time. See Whipped CARNATION Evaporated Milk Recipe.
