In 1890 our great-great-grandmother started making Cornish clotted cream in her farmhouse kitchen here in the heart of Cornwall. Over 120 years on, we’re still crafting it the same way, by gently baking rich local cream until it’s thick, unctuous and thoroughly dollopable.
The crowning glory of Rodda’s has always been its delicious golden crust, which is especially rich and delicate because of the quality of our milk and the way we bake it. The crust is a sign of quality and rather like gold-top milk, where all the tastiest bits rise to the surface. It’s a protective seal of freshness for the delicious, silky cream below and it’s how you know you’ve got the real deal.
With its golden crust and silky smooth taste, it is traditionally enjoyed in English Cream Tea, but is also the perfect accompaniment for strawberries, Christmas pudding or any dessert.
Rodda’s Cornish Clotted Cream is one of the few British foods to have been awarded the accolade of a PDO. This Protected Designation of Origin recognises and protects the uniqueness and distinctiveness of our cream. Cornish clotted cream can only be produced by the traditional recipe in Cornwall.
