What Is Clotted Cream And Why Is It Illegal In The US?

Clotted cream is a traditional English cream topping enjoyed on scones in tea rooms. Authentic clotted cream must be produced exclusively in either Devon or Cornwall.

Clotted cream is technically illegal in America, as it is made with unpasteurized milk, and the FDA banned milk products that haven't been pasteurized in America in 1987.

When milk is unpasteurized, it means the milk is raw and hasn't been processed to remove bacteria. Clotted cream is made with unpasteurized milk to help it "clot.”

The FDA bans the distribution of such products, so you'll have difficulty finding clotted cream in any U.S. grocery store. The best way to get some is to make it yourself.
