"Dessert should close the meal gently and not in a pyrotechnic blaze of glory."
-Alan Koehler, Cookbook author

The refrigerator light goes on...

This is a great technique but the whipped cream is not very stable and has to be used within about 30 - 45 minutes of being made. Keep it very chilled. It works well with non-fat evaporated milk also but has a more caramelized flavor.

Whisk

Whisks are made from loops of fine wire joined at the handle.  There are a number of different sizes and shapes of whisks used for different tasks.  Large balloon whisks, for example, are best to incorporate air as when whipping cream.  

The French or Wire Whisk is made with stiffer wire and a more elongated shape.  It is used to blend ingredients until smooth as in pancake batter.  

You may find in many recipes that ‘whisk’ is often used interchangeably with the term ‘whip’.  


 

Whipped Cream



Servings = 12 | Serving size =1/3 cup (makes 4 cups)

Cooking Time = 30 Minutes

This recipe is not easily multiplied and doesn’t keep well. The whipped cream can be made up to 30 minutes in advance but must be kept very cold. Whisk lightly before serving.

1 Tbsp unflavored gelatin (1 packet)
1/4 cup cold water
1 1/2 cups 1% milk
1/4 cup Granulated Stevia or Splenda
1 tsp pure vanilla extract

In a small bowl, sprinkle the packet of unflavored gelatin over the cold water and let stand until the gelatin absorbs the water.

In a medium saucepan over medium-low heat, scald the milk.

Remove from the heat and add it to the gelatin, whisking until the gelatin dissolves.

Stir in the Splenda and vanilla extract.

Refrigerate, stirring every ten minutes, until very cold (about 1 1/2 hours) and then place in a large bowl of ice water for 30 minutes, and let it stand, whisking often.

Using a handheld mixer set at high speed, beat until the mixture is thick and fluffy.
