There are few friends on the Way to freedom; most people would rather endure comfortable bondage in the arms of the System in the wide valley far below than experience the danger liberty offers. There, on the narrow path on the mountain it just keeps getting narrower until we have ditched every burden that drags us back and spend more time crawling on our knees than we do walking.
Shockingly decadent, I know; but I have to admit that it's a weakness; or it would be if I could get it often enough. As it is, I forgot to buy any the last time we were in the UK, which was last August.
I've tried making my own with fresh farm milk from round the corner from where we live. It worked pretty well, but you need a lot of milk to make a decent amount of cream. With two litres I was able to make about 150 g. It takes two days to complete the process, which is another reason why most people buy it ready-made. It's more expensive that way, plus you lose the milk. Make your own, and you can use the milk in soups, etc. Actually, we drank it and had it on cereal and it tasted fine.
