Whipped Cream Chef Tips

05 Mar

Chef Jason Hill of shows you how to make whipped cream in this episode of “Chef Tips.”

This homemade whipped cream recipe uses 2 1/2 cups of chilled heavy cream, which is placed inside a col mixing bowl. Whisk in 3 tablespoons of white sugar, followed by 2 teaspoons of vanilla (if you want a chantilly cream, which was invented in France during the 1800s). You make make whipped cream without the vanilla, but I think it adds a nice flavor.

Next, using a figure-8 motion with your hand, continually whisk to incorporate air into the cream, about 5 minutes. Or you can use a mixer. Whipped cream dispensers require nitrous oxide inside a whipped cream charger. As a result, I prefer whipping cream by hand instead of using the whipped cream dispenser.

Now you can impress your friends by showing them how to make whipped cream from scratch. This keeps well in the refrigerator, and if it flattens down slightly, simply whisk it up again when you’re ready to use it.
