Did you know that it is only thirteen days till Thanksgiving and forty-three days until Christmas? I love this time of the year for many reasons such as: quality family time, great deals, and yummy food! To me there is nothing better than sitting at the big long table with all of my family and listening to them catch up with each other while eating a huge meal that we all made together. One of the main ingredients and a must-have for several of our favorite dishes is milk! Can you imagine how much the sales for all the dairy products go up during the holiday season? Think about it. You need milk, buttermilk, half and half, and/or whipping cream for a variety of desserts and side dishes. And having fresh dairy will make these dishes taste even better!
Anderson Erickson Dairy (AE Dairy) is a dairy that has been operating in Des Moines, Iowa since 1930. AE Dairy’s leadership team (up to and including the CEO) taste-tests the products they make on a weekly basis to ensure that everything tastes exactly how it’s meant to – fresh and delicious. Which makes them the perfect choice for all your holiday baking!
AE Dairy’s best products for cooks and bakers are probably Buttermilk, Half and Half, and Heavy Whipping Cream. The farm-fresh tang of AE Buttermilk will add delicious flavor to your dishes. Their Half and Half is a fresh and smooth blend of milk and cream. Finally there is their Heavy Whipping Cream, which is all natural with a pure, fresh taste and a smoother consistency as compared to similar brands, because it has 40% butterfat versus others with only 36%. Not only does it have more butterfat, the AE Heavy Whipping Cream whips faster and maintains its body and texture after whipping.
