Gossner Shelf-Stable Whipping Cream

Debbie has been telling me about the Gossner Shelf-Stable (meaning it can sit on your shelf until you open it) Whipping Cream and how she uses it all of the time.  (She doesn’t even buy fresh whipping cream anymore!)  To be honest, I didn’t believe some of her claims like that it is cheaper than fresh (how could that even be?!), or that it didn’t have a weird taste.  (I heard my husband talk about shelf-stable milk in not so favorable terms after he had to drink it for two years while on his LDS mission.)  Could it really live up to all of Debbie’s claims that you could make butter, whipped cream, and even ice cream out of it? I never tried that hard to experiment with it because I thought you had to live in Utah to get it.  I don’t like to admit it, but I was wrong on ALL accounts.  In fact, I love this shelf-stable whipping cream so much, that it is my new favorite food storage item! Let’s just break down all of these claims and look at them:

CLAIM #1: IS GOSSNER’S SHELF-STABLE WHIPPING CREAM CHEAPER THAN FRESH?

The numbers don’t lie.  I was so shocked when I took this picture at my local grocery store and saw how expensive the cream is!  But as I started experimenting more and more with Gossner’s shelf-stable cream, it just made me fall more and more in love with it!  So yeah…I think I’m with Debbie, I won’t be buying store bought cream anymore.

CLAIM #2: DOES GOSSNER’S SHELF-STABLE WHIPPING CREAM HAVE A FUNNY TASTE?

LEMON ALFREDO

Absolutely not!  I’ve tried it in so many recipes ranging from ice cream to a yummy Lemon Alfredo and it has all been fabulous.  I can only imagine what it will be like this Fall to make all of those yummy creamy soups that call for cream (which, before, I never made because I never had cream around)!  This is a must-have item!

CLAIM #3: CAN YOU MAKE WHIPPED CREAM, ICE CREAM, AND BUTTER WITH GOSSNER’S SHELF-STABLE WHIPPING CREAM?

Yes, yes, and YES! Holy frijoles!  I have had so much fun making whipped cream, ice cream, and butter from my food storage.  I was particularly excited about the butter because I’ve tried every recipe online for turning powdered butter into something you’d want to spread on toast (and don’t leave a comment for the honey butter that is mostly sugar, I’d rather just use whipped honey) and NONE of them work.  They are all terrible, just trust me.  In fact, I was so impressed that I made THREE videos that you can watch to see just how easy it is to have your family’s favorites from your food storage.  (After all, who wants expensive freeze-dried squeaky crunchy ice cream when you can have cool, creamy ice cream for the price of what it costs at the store?!)

CLAIM #4: YOU HAVE TO LIVE IN UTAH TO PURCHASE GOSSNER’S SHELF-STABLE CREAM

FALSE!  Don’t get me wrong, if you can stop by Gossners or a Honeyville store you can get it cheaper.  But I was able to find an online outlet to purchase from that even has FREE shipping.  You can even use your Amazon account for easy checkout.  It comes in a case of 12, and trust me, it will be easy to use! Click HERE to visit Diversified Foods, Inc. where you can get the best ONLINE price for this cream.

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW:

While Gossner’s shelf-stable cream has some remarkable qualities, there are a few that you need to know about that are so-so.  The first one being, that the best-buy (note: it is NOT an expiration date) can be 6-12 months from when you purchase it.  This isn’t a huge red flag to me because it is a product that you can easily rotate through because it is so much cheaper than the grocery store, but you do need to be aware of it so you don’t leave it sitting on the shelf for too long. 😉  After opening, you DO need to refrigerate any leftovers.

DID YOU KNOW?

There are also other shelf-stable milks (including chocolate and whole milk) that are also available.

    Hi,

    Does this have any weird chemicals in it? How do they get it to stay fresh for so long.

    Thanks,

      Hi Matthew,
      Thank you for your question. I am pretty sure it is just cream. They heat it up to a high enough temperature to kill all the pathogens and seal it in a hermetically sealed box to keep it safe and sound on a shelf for years for your eating pleasure. It is simply amazing the safe packaging techniques the world have come up with making food storage so much better!

      Hi Gaby. Thank you for your question. We have been using our Gossner cream for over 3 years and it is still yummy.
      You should have no problem storing it for two years, as long as it is kept relatively cool (like in your house).
      Good luck on your Path to Preparedness and ask questions any time.
      Debbie and Crystal

    I have used this product and it is every bit as good as you say. I had 24 cartons of it and wasn’t able to use it by the “best by” date. I found the only issue with it was that as it aged, it did not whip as well. It was still good for non-whip applications (like Creamy Chicken Enchiladas). I found it needed to be very cold to whip even when it was newer, too.

      Hi Angie,
      Thank you for your comment. We are happy to see you love it as much as we do. You are absolutely right about the cream having to be really cold to whip. I have been using cream that is 3 years old and havent had a problem with whipping it as long as it is cold and it is wonderful in many other uses also. Your Creamy Chicken Enchilads are making me hungrey just thinking about them. Keep on the Path to Preparedness!

    Pretty amazing. I just wanted to report that I ordered a case of quarts (12) from Diversified Foods Inc. webstore for $46.80. Being from Alaska I kept waited for the reply that they don’t ship to Alaska or that shipping will be another $40. Or that they do not ship internationally. Any one of the reasons we often get. Imagine my surprise when I received an undamaged case of Gossner Foods whipping cream delivered to my door step for $3.91 a quart. I will be trying it soon. Thanks so much for this post. Just one question, when you make the butter do you wash it in cold water?
