Baking Tips: Infusing Cream!

Want to pump up the volume in your next baking adventure? With a little planning ahead, you can add that POW! that no one will expect!

Tip of the Monday: Infuse cream before whipping it for a burst of flavor! It’s easy! And a great way to add flavor naturally.

Here’s how to do it: The night before pour the amount of whipped cream (+a little extra, just in case) into a bowl or jar. Roughly chop the herb you want to infuse the cream with and stir it in. Let chill over night. The next day strain the cream pressing the herbs into the strainer to further release flavor. Then whip as normal!

Infused Cream

What can you use to infuse? Fresh mint or basil from the garden, thyme, oo lemon thyme! I’m sure you could do rose or lavender, large pieces of citrus rind, or even coffee beans! Don’t worry about the color changing. Even with coffee beans, the color will stay white- which just means it’s another great way to surprise your guests with another amazing dessert!

What about something simple in the summer like cut strawberries with mint infused whipped cream and maybe a little cinnamon and raw sugar?
