they have different qualities that may affect the final product.
Heavy cream is more like whipping cream, but heavier, and both will be richer and have a higher fat content than evaporated milk, which is more like drinking milk.
: I have a recipe that calls for either 1/4 c of heavy cream or evaporated milk?
: Can I always substitute evaporated milk for heavy cream - even low fat evaporated milk - in recipes - obviously not for whipping cream, etc, but to make a creamy tomato sauce, etc.?
