Making Whipped Cream with Half and Half?
I have a half gallon of half and half in my fridge and would like to make some whipped cream with it, I know that I need whipping cream to do this but I was wondering if there is anything I could add to half and half to create a whipped cream? My daughter has asked for this because she loves whipped cream and strawberries on top of her pancakes, and I just ran out of my store bought whipped cream.
Thanks for your ideas! =~)
You will be able to make whipped cream. It won't be as fatty a mouthfeel as heavy cream, but you will be able to whip it up. To make it go well, it needs to be ICE COLD to start off with. Put it in the coldest part of your fridge, and then stick in the freezer just before you plan to whip it. Do not remove it from refrigeration until you plan to use it. Don't take it out, then leave it on the counter while you are assembling your whipping apparatus. Only take it out to pour it into your bowl for whipping. Sticking the bowl you plan on whipping it in into the freezer is a great idea. The colder you keep it, the better it will turn out. Cold bowl, cold half n half, and a fast and furious whip.
