Homemade Devonshire Cream: Fit For A Queen!

Devonshire or Devon Cream is a clotted cream produced in Devon Cornwall and Somerset England.  It is traditionally made by heating unpasturized milk until a thick layer of cream forms on the surface.  It is a wonderful accompaniment to scones, alongside jam and lemon curd.  Now I don't know about you, but I'm a city girl so I don't actually have any cows in my backyard.  Therefore I don't have access to unpasturized milk.  Nor do I really want go to the trouble of heating said milk until the cream forms.  This recipe for "mock" Devonshire Cream is a more than delicious substitute for the real thing and way easier than milking your royal cows.
