Kitchen Tips Tuesday: Whipping Cream


Freshly whipped cream is an amazing finishing touch to desserts and takes a bowl of strawberries to the next level of delicousness.

It isn’t very difficult to whip cream if you have an electic mixer, but if left unattended, it can start to become butter. While fresh sweet cream butter is incredibly good, it probably isn’t what you were planning to put on top of your pie.

If it starts to go too far, no worries. Just add a little bit more of the heavy cream to the bowl and whisk it in to bring it back to the consistency you were looking for. Of course you need to have more cream on hand to do this. Perhaps saving a few tablespoons, “just in case” isn’t a bad idea for distracted or newbie cooks.

A little vanilla extract, bourbon or flavoring of your choice is also a nice touch.
