I think I’m getting the hang of this whole YouTube thing. And I kind of love it. Today, I’m showing you how to make homemade whipped cream in a jar. A JAR. This would be pretty perfect for those extra-busy holidays where you’ve already got ~294038 dirty whisks staring up at you from the dishwasher. Or, you know, just for any old day when you’re craving something fresh, sweet, and special.
I know it’s a pretty straightforward recipe, but it’s also a really important one that you’ll use again and again. So, why not simplify it even further?
Many apologies to fans of W.B. Yeats. (I’m one myself!) Promise I cleaned the book off thoroughly.
I’ll leave you with a nice poem of his, anyway, to make amends.
And below that, you’ll find the ever-so-simple whipped cream recipe.
The Lake Isle of Innisfree
by William Butler Yeats
I will arise and go now, and go to Innisfree,
And a small cabin build there, of clay and wattles made;
Nine bean-rows will I have there, a hive for the honey-bee,
And live alone in bee-loud glad.
And I shall have some peace there, for peace comes dropping slow,
Dropping from the veils of the morning to where the cricket sings;
There midnight’s all a glimmer, and noon a purple glow,
And evening full of the linnet’s wings.
I will arise and go now, for always night and day
I hear lake water lapping with low sounds by the shore;
While I stand on the roadway, or on the pavements grey,
I hear it in the deep heart’s core.
HOMEMADE WHIPPED CREAM IN A JAR
WHAT YOU’LL NEED:
- 16 oz. mason jar
- 1 cup heavy whipping cream
- 1 heaping tablespoon confectioner’s sugar
WHAT YOU’LL DO:
- Pour all the ingredients into the jar; screw the lid on super tight! Then, throw it into your freezer for 10 minutes (not long enough to freeze it, though).
- Shake the jar vigorously for 3-4 minutes.
- Peek inside and marvel at all that fresh whipped cream goodness! Then, enjoy on top of fresh fruit, pancakes, hot chocolate, whatever you please — as soon as possible.
