Types of cream and their uses

ennuisans | Aug 8, 2012 11:42 PM

I don't know beans about cream, and in my local markets the options are limited to half-and-half and heavy whipping cream. Often recipes will call for whipping cream, or heavy cream (or double cream if British) but are they the same thing? I'm hoping folks would like to share their advice on cream varieties and usage (also substitutions, when possible, for buttermilk, yogurt, sour cream, etc.).
