DIRECTIONS

  • Soak plain gelatin in cold water for 5 minutes.
  • Dissolve by placing it in a container over a small pot of simmering water.
  • Allow to cool.
  • Using an electric mixer, beat cream in a large well-chilled bowl.
  • Just before it becomes soft and billowy, slowly add the sugar and flavorings to the whipped cream at the sides of the bowl, continuing to whip as you do.
  • Whip the cream until barely stiff.
  • Add melted and cooled gelatin all at once to cream during whipping.
  • Stop whipping when cream forms soft peaks.
  • Finish beating with whisk to adjust consistency.
  • Serve immediately or cover and refrigerate.
  • TIPS: For 1 cup of cream use 1/2 teaspoon gelatin soaked in 1 tablespoon cold water.
  • For 2 cups of cream use 1 teaspoon gelatin soaked in 2 tablespoons cold water.
  • For 6 cups of cream use 1 tablespoon soaked in 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoon cold water.
  • Stabilized whipped cream can be flavored, but do it as soon as possible before the gelatin sets.
