    Растительные сливки

    Can any one explain растительные сливки to me, please? (That's rastitel'nye slivki in case my cyrillic doesn't work.)

    Literally it means vegetable cream, which I understand to mean some sort of non-dairy creamer. Could it mean vegetable extract? I came across it in an advertising poster from 1925.

    The can on the poster reads:
    Сгущенные растительные сливки
    Ореховые

    Should that be translated as "Condensed non-dairy cream, walnut flavor"?

    Or just as "condensed nut extract"?

    Thanks for any help.

    To the best of my knowledge, that's artificial cream-like product made of vegetable fats. Yuck.

    So, "Сгущенные растительные сливки ореховые" means "Artificial condenced cream made of nut oil."
    The above may contain Siberian words, idioms, usages, and ideas. Take care.
