Half and half is simply a combination of milk (typically whole milk) and cream, with the fat content ranging from 10% to 18%. Because of the milk, it can not be whipped like cream, but it’s great for adding richness and fat to recipes when heavy cream is too much, but whole milk is not enough.
Examples of where you might see half and half used are quiche, ice cream and cakes. Scroll to the end of the post for some sample recipes!,
