Do I whip whipping cream?
« on: October 02, 2007, 04:18:41 PM »
Please excuse the very ignorant question I'm about to ask. I wasn't really taught much about cooking while growing up, and I made a mistake with this once before, but I can't remember what it was!

When a recipe calls for whipping cream (not whipped cream), do I need to whip the whipping cream before I use it? Or will the recipe tell me if I need to whip it?

Have fun reading this post aloud!  ;D

the recipe will usually tell you if you need to whip it

Hey that is a valid question!

And usually the directions will tell you need to whip it.  If not, whipping cream is the same as heavy cream in most instances.

That's right.  Unless the directions specifically say to whip the cream, or the cream is listed in the ingredient list as "whipping cream, whipped" (although that's pretty unusual), do NOT whip the cream before using it.

All those with two, draw one.  All those with none, turn one in.
