Recipe for Cream Preparation

First, melt the cream in a double boiler -- a bowl placed over a pot that is with boiling water. Next, add the dried herbs. Stir the mixture until the cream takes on the herbs' color. Take the mixture off of the heat, then strain the cream using the mesh strainer. Place the strained cream in a glass bowl to cool, then transfer the cream to dark bottles. Store the bottles in a dark, cool place, where the cream will be preserved to use for up to a year.
