Tips for using whipping cream in cooking and baking:
Here are some tips for using whipping cream in your cooking:
● Use cold whipping cream straight from the fridge for the best results. Do not bring it to room temperature; cold heavy cream is key!
● Place your mixing bowl and whisk attachment in the freezer for 30 minutes before making your whipped cream. A chilled bowl works wonders when making your whipped cream.
● Whip the cream until soft peaks form – overwhipping can lead to a grainy texture. Stiff peaks will form when you whip the heavy whipping cream longer at high speed.
● Use a whisk or electric mixer to whip the cream if making a large amount from scratch.
● Use whipping cream with a high-fat content (typically labeled as heavy cream) for the best results.
● Store freshly made whipped cream in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 24 hours.
● These recipes are made from simple ingredients commonly found at your local grocery store.
