whipping cream


Preparation

1
Pour the whipping cream into a bowl, preferably copper. Both the cream and the tools you use to whip it should be cold.

2
To prepare the whipped cream, you should use cream with a high fat content of at least 35%. You can whip the cream using either an electric mixer or by hand.

3
If you choose to whip the cream manually, be sure to continuous and brisk circular movements.

4
As the cream begins to thicken, place the whisk even deeper into the bowl to reach the liquid.

5
If you want a semi-whipped cream, stop once the cream has formed soft peaks. If you prefer a well-whipped cream, continue whisking until the cream remains firm even as you tilt the bowl.

6
There should be no liquid parts and the cream should form stiff peaks. If the cream is over-whipped, it will form clumps and turn slightly yellow.

7
Once you have reached the desired consistency, the whipped cream should be used immediately.
